A Telegraph photo (Pictures of the day: March 28th) of the Western Wall in Jerusalem included the following AFP caption:
However, as even reports at the Telegraph over the years have consistently made clear, Judaism’s holiest site is the Temple Mount, not the Western Wall. The Western Wall is merely the most sacred place in the city where Jews are permitted to pray.
We contacted editors, and noted that, following communication with our CAMERA colleague, AFP revised their orginal captions, which now no longer make the claim that the Western Wall is the holiest Jewish site.
The Telegraph upheld our complaint, and revised their caption accordingly.
