ISIS steals Los Angeles photographer's image to use as propaganda

A photo taken by a well-known Los Angeles photographer and artist was hijacked by the terrorist organization ISIS and altered as recruitment propaganda.

The original photo by Brian McCarty of West Hollywood shows a Cinderella figurine with toy missiles falling on her.

The image is part of the book "WAR-TOYS," which features a series of photographs of toys in war-torn areas to highlight the issue of children living in these places.

McCarty found out his photo had been doctored by the Islamic State, with Cinderella swapped for its black flag.

"It is an absolute kick in the teeth to see this happen," McCarty said.
