Should we be showing suicide bombers' publicity stills?

Having courted controversy over its use of a female suicide bomber, militant Islamic group Hamas is publicly reinforcing its campaign message by releasing pictures of Reem Raiyshi with her children.

As reported (with picture) on Ananova, the sight of the 22 year old mother with the two young children her actions orphaned is as shocking as her subsequent deadly deed.

The use of the young mother has caused widespread outrage amid fears that more children could be left orphaned or worse still, used in future attacks.

Media Beak asks - should the media be showing such pictures? your comments please!
