Whoops!  The Financial Times wrongly used a photo of Bahrain’s foreign minister, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al Khalifa, with a report on accused Sept. 11 plotter Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the Huffington Post reported.

The Financial Times’ Dec. 21/22 story was titled “Guantanamo inmates face two divergent paths after 12 years,” and included a photo of the foreign minister captioned as “among five detainees on trial.”  The caption of the photo called him the accused terrorist.

The Financial Times has published a correction and apology to the foreign minister, “Apology to His Excellency Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al Khalifa.” Check out the print apology below.
