Al-Akhbar Management

Editor's Corner features readers' letters to the editor, corrections, and updates about Al-Akhbar English.

On May 21, Al-Akhbar English published an article titled, "A mother’s right to health in the refugee camps of Lebanon" that addressed the problems facing pregnant women, and mothers in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. At the request of Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), the article was removed in order to protect the organization and its employees operating in the camps.

On June 5, Al-Akhbar English published an article titled "New details shed light on the Aleppo Prison siege" and another on June 15 titled "Syria: Drinking water and war profiteers in Aleppo", both addressing the current situation in Aleppo, Syria. The International Committee of the Red Cross has written a statement in response to the articles which can be read here.
