Ms Annika Thunborg, Spokesperson of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that a member of the CTBTO's staff, whose death was under investigation, was connected to talks about Iran hosted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In fact, the individual in question was a processing engineer who had no role whatsoever in the Iran negotiations held by the IAEA.


The newspaper accepted that the report was erroneous and published the following correction:

On October 22 we incorrectly stated that Timothy Hampton, who tragically died after a fall at a UN building in Austria, was about to take part in disarmament talks with Iran. Mr Hampton had no role in Iran negotiations hosted by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
