Some European Media Announce New Policy Regarding Dissemination of Information On Terrorists, Terrorism Suspects; Will No Longer Publish Images, Names

From the Guardian: a number of French media outlets, including Le Monde, have announced they will no longer publish images of those who have committed terrorist attacks, in order to prevent those persons from receiving any admiration from others, and to discourage future attacks. Europe 1 says it will not give out names of those who commit such attacks. More here from the Guardian newspaper, here from the Washington Post, here from Le Monde (in French).
