LONDON, December 11. /ITAR-TASS /. Top British newspapers – The Times, The Sun and others — have published on Wednesday on their front pages the picture of laughing US President Barak Obama, UK Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. The photograph was made in South Africa on Tuesday, on the VIP bleachers of Soweto stadium, in the middle of the funeral service in memory of SAR’s ex-president Nelson Mandela.

“It led to a backlash from Twitter users who said it was inappropriate behaviour at an event to remember the life of the anti-apartheid hero,” the Daily Mail writes.

All media outlets note that in the moment of shooting US First Lady Michelle Obama was sitting near with a “poker face”.
