Looks OK to me. What part is troubling you?
Remember it is a caption so it has to be concise, and it uses tools such as the colon to achieve that.

Oh yes, sorry, didn't see that. I saw an o not an a. My mistake.


Verbatim - a tip - if you have a sentence of interest, put it in the body of the post, because once someone starts to compose an answer they can't see the title.
Not that it would necessarily have stopped me misreading it, but it would have given me less excuse! Whistle

It can be a style of putting the headline, but still.....

Shouldn't ISIS be more correct, in stead of Isis?
