Scuffle of the week

Living Marxism v ITN. Ian Williams an ITN journalist told the High Court that he bent over backwards to present an accurate picture of the Serb-run detention camp in Bosnia. Williams is suing the magazine for libel over claims that ITN fabricated an image of a muslim prisoner behind a barbed wire fence at a camp at Trnopolje in 1992. The article in Living Marxism in February 1997 said the camp was not a prison but a collection centre for refugees and that the barbed wire surrounded the news team which was filming from an enclosure next to the camp.
