Muslim woman sues Associated Press over photo taken of her in hijab
by Julia Marsh
A Muslim woman from Queens is suing the Associated Press over a photograph that was taken of her wearing a hijab– because the unauthorized image was later included in a controversial opinion article about headscarves.
Fifi Youssef was at Starbucks during a work break Dec. 16 when the AP's Mark Lennihan quietly photographed the young woman with her head down, looking at her phone.
The AP uploaded the image onto its Web site for "editorial use" by other news outlets with the keywords "hijab, Muslim, Islam," according to court papers.
