The AP apologizes to Eritrea for falsely reporting two Eritrean air force pilots defected to Ethiopia

AP's Elias Meseret Taye's credential was allegedly revoked after falsely reporting two Eritrean air force pilots defected to Ethiopia on October 27, 2016

A reporter’s credential is revoked after he falsely reported that two Eritrean pilots defected to Ethiopia with their military jet.

The article in question, from 27 October, was by an Ethiopian freelance journalist, Elias Meseret Taye, working for AP.

In an email to Eritrean embassy in Washington, his employers wrote, “we cherish the trust our readers place in us to provide an accurate and vivid account of the world. On this case, the article was false and created subsequent ill-informed and damaging coverage in other media outlets and across social media.”
