Default Kuwait Times Issues Retraction


"The Kuwait Times, original source of the "news" that Kuwait had banned the use of DSLRs by non-journalists, has issued a retraction, which I quote here in full."

The retraction can be read at the link on The Online Photographer, and this is the reason why I did not post the news initially when it was breaking out on the blogosphere and even the mainstream news. Kuwait is one of the more progressive (or less conservative depending on your viewpoint) Middle East countries, and such a blanket ban seemed somewhat out of the blue.

In any case, this teaches us all to be critical of what we read; just because it is in a book, newspaper, or on the Internet, it isn't always true!
