Canadian newspaper issues apology for Taiwan headline

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A Canadian newspaper on Monday issued an apology and correction over a mistake it made last week for the headline of a story it published that mistook Taiwan for Thailand.

The Canadian Daily Metro issued the correction at the page three of its May 26 issue.

"In our May 23 edition, a headline incorrectly stated there was a military coup in Taiwan. The coup was in Thailand. We are sorry and wish to express our sincerest apologies to anyone who was offended by the error," it said.

The newspaper on Friday published an Associated Press article in its Vancouver edition on the military coup in Thailand.

However, the article's headline mistakenly said that the coup had occurred in Taiwan instead of Thailand.

Promptly after the newspaper's release, Taiwan's office in Vancouver immediately asked the Canadian newspaper to make correction.

"The title, which reads: 'Government overthrown in Taiwan as military stages bloodless coup,' is inaccurate and misleading as it was in Thailand that the coup took place, not Taiwan," the office said in a statement.

"To avoid further confusion and misunderstandings, this office has immediately requested that the Metro correct the mistake," it added.
