You know that story we posted a few days ago about SLR cameras being banned from the streets of Kuwait?
It turned out that it caused a bit of uproar – and rightly so. But it also turns out that it was incorrect.
The Kuwait Times have just published a retraction on their original article.
“[we] published an article titled ‘Multi ministry camera ban frustrates artists’ in which incorrect information was provided. The newspaper regrets failing to verify the information. The article wrongly stated that a ban on DSLR cameras was implemented by the Ministries of Information, Social Affairs and Finance.
This information is false. In a follow up investigation, it was proved that no such ban has been issued. We regret this error and deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused.”
So, break out your SLR camera and re-book your tickets to the middle east – we’re all ready to go
