Egyptian police arrested a man for a shooting staged shots with the participation of children, which were positioned as photos of destructions and wounded civilians in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the RIA Novosti news agency reported, citing a statement of the Egyptian Ministry of Internal Affairs. The photographs were spread via social networks.

As the Egyptian Interior Ministry reported on its official Facebook page, the shooting team, which included assistants of the photographer and parents of the young actors, was detained in the province of Port Said.

Egyptian police became a witness of a shooting process, which took place on ruins of an illegal building, demolished by a decision of the authorities. The attention of policemen, accidentally driving by the place, was attracted by a minor girl, dressed in a bloodstained white dress, who kept a white teddy bear in her hands. The plush toy also was besmirched with red spots. As the policemen immediately ascertained, the ‘blood’ turned out to be an ordinary paint.

After a short discussion and viewing of the work of the team, the photographer told police that he was going to publish these photos on social networks, setting them up as footage from Aleppo.

The photographer was detained by police for four days for investigation of the incident. The rest participants of the shooting were released on bail.
