Hi Mike, and David,

In JOSM, if I right-click on the Bing imagery near the location given by
David, and choose "Display tile information", it shows that capture date
was: 4/6/2011.

So, if we trust the metadata, Bing imagery is older than the date
mentioned for WorldView-2. The two small buildings described by David
may have been destroyed in the meantime.

Best regards,

de nombreux juifs ont eu une attitude carrément hostile à l’égard du
