George Galloway

Complaint:

Mr George Galloway, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, complained that the newspaper had reported that some of the Mumbai terrorists were British Pakistanis, despite the rejection on the same day of any such claims by the British government.

Resolution:

The newspaper detailed its position that it had been reporting the emerging and breaking news as it happened. The article had reported claims that the gunmen were British; it had subsequently been widely reported that they were not British. The complainant accepted this explanation as a resolution to his complaint.
