The article, titled “Charlie Hebdo Attack and Mossad Link: Is Israel Venting Its Fury For France’s Recognition of Palestine State” by Gopi Chandra Kharel was published early Thursday morning.
“There is no clarity on which organisation is behind the attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday and therefore, conspiracy theories are gaining traction in internet forums,” the article stated. “Fingers are being pointed toward intelligence agencies and Mossad of Israel is a prime contender.”
In an editor’s note (http://bit.ly/1wxGHvR) posted regarding the article, the publication states, “A story reporting on conspiracy theorists who allege a link between Israeli intelligence and the Paris shootings should never have been published and we have therefore removed it from our site. The story was beneath our standards and we apologize for this basic lapse in judgement.”
