Reuters Corrects Prosecutor Liat Ben Ari’s Title

CAMERA’s Israel office yesterday prompted correction of multiple captions which misidentified deputy state prosecutor Liat Ben Ari, who is prosecutor in the corruption trial against Prime Minister Netanyahu, as a “plaintiff.” Samples of the erroneous captions follow:

In response to communication from CAMERA, Reuters commendably refiled the photographs with a corrected caption. The corrected captions state:
