Financial Times Weekend Mistakes Bahrain's Foreign Minister For Khaled Sheikh Mohammed


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."
