A reader emailed them about their appallingly naive and anti-American take on al Qaeda in their children's guide to current events, Newsround. I posted about it here. He got this response from the Beeb:

Thank you for your email to Newsround. The article you are referring to is an old guide that we thought had been purged from our system. It is my understanding that it was written on the day of the attacks back in 2001. I agree that it is inappropriate and it is now being taken off the site.

In addition to this, I have asked staff to do a thorough search to ensure the guides that remain online are accurate and objective.

I am genuinely sorry that this article has appeared and that it has caused offence.
