India Today Corrects: Tel Aviv Not Israel’s Capital

CAMERA’s Israel office today prompts correction of an India Today article which incorrectly identified Tel Aviv as Israel’s capital. Yesterday’s article, covering Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s landmark visit to Israel (“PM Modi in Israel: Ramanujan symbol of Indian talent, says Benjamin Netanyahu“), erroneously referred to “Israel’s capital Tel Aviv.”
 

CAMERA staff reminded editors that Jerusalem, not Tel Aviv, is Israel’s capital, and shortly later they commendably corrected. The amended article now says “Prime Minister Narendra Modi today landed in Israeli [sic] city of Tel Aviv.”
