A Danish television channel has accidentally used an Assassin’s Creed screenshot during a report on the conflict in Syria.

Jacob Nybroe, head of news at the channel, confirmed to The Times of Israel that the shot was used accidentally. According to Nybroe, the image was supplied by an employee who found it online and believed it to be a photo of the Damascus skyline.

“[This is a] reminder to us all of the importance of verifying the sources of pictures,” Nybroe said.

This isn’t the first time that a blunder like this has occurred. Back in 2011, ITV accidentally used footage from ARMA 2 instead of an IRA film and last year the BBC displayed Halo‘s UNSC logo instead of one for the United Nations.
