The above is one image from a striking set of images concerning barbed wire in the Rohingya camps of Bangladesh. More on this soon.
The above photo was used by AFP without authorisation. We spotted it featured on The Guardian news site. You can read our initial complaint to AFP below. In a letter to Shafiur Rahman, AFP have acknowledged fault, removed the photo from their system, and at the time of writing have agreed to compensate the photographer and overhaul their engagement with Rohingya stringers.
Shafiur Rahman on Twitter: "UNAUTHORISED USAGE of a photo by a #Rohingya #refugee by major news & visual media companies. @AFPphoto @getty Photo appears in @guardian today BUT was EXCLUSIVELY submitted to @RohingyaPhoto competition. Uploaded to its insta. Photographer IN SHOCK! https://t.co/Y4BJWrTOjf… https://t.co/g45TW5gviY"
