Meanwhile on the other side of the world, there are “ninja” but don’t dare call them “assassins” – “Iran suspends Reuters over female ninjas headline”:
Officials in Tehran have suspended the bureau of the international news agency Reuters after one of its headlines described Iranian female ninjas as assassins.
Iran’s ministry of culture and Islamic guidance has also asked all Reuters’s 11 staff in Tehran to hand back their press accreditations and stop working for the agency.
Acknowledging its error, Reuters reported that its headline “Thousands of female Ninjas train as Iran’s assassins” had been corrected to read “Three thousand women Ninjas train in Iran”.
