In one particularly telling example, The Sun reported an attacker who opened fire on shoppers at a Spanish supermarket whilst screaming Allahu Akbar. The Sun headlined the article ‘Supermarket Terror’. However, the Spanish police later stated that the suspect had shouted something in the Basque language, and not Allahu Akbar. The Sun then retracted the claim and retitled the article ‘Supermarket Horror’.
