Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al Khalifa, the foreign minister of Bahrain, and Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged architect of Al Qaeda's 9/11 attacks, are two very different people.

Unfortunately, the weekend edition of the Financial Times had to clarify that after the newspaper mistakenly identified a photo of Bahrain's foreign minister as the terrorist.

"We apologise unreservedly to His Excellency Sheikh Khalid for the error and any distress caused," a correction notice posted online Sunday read. "We wish to make it clear that His Excellency Sheikh Khalid has no connection whatsoever with the article."
