Mail Online apologises over initial Finsbury Park mosque attack headline which referenced 'hate cleric Abu Hamza'

.... After changing the headline Mail Online published the following correction: “An earlier version of this article bore a headline which stated the victims had been attacked outside the Finsbury Park Mosque, where Abu Hamza once preached.

“This was based on initial reports from reputable news agencies, although it has since been clarified that the attack took place closer to the Muslim Welfare House.

“We are happy to make this clear, and apologise for any contrary impression given.” [Press Gazette] Read more
