Reuters; Not reading from the same page…

Quite how Reuters can one day confidently report that Timbuktu libraries have been torched, ( http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/01/28/uk-mali-rebels-idUKBRE90P0A120130128and) and then two days later report that they haven’t been torched and the majority of manuscripts are in fact safe is a little baffling. It does sound as if a small number of manuscripts have sadly been burnt, overall the below article is a far more positive turnaround:

Clearly, while new information has since come to light, it’s a shame that so many media sources reported news of such devastating actions based on unconfirmed reports.
