Oops. ABC News uses incorrect footage in asylum seekers story

ABC News has apologised for incorrect footage in a report earlier this month, its second error this month.

On 9 November ABC News 7pm broadcast a story about a High Court ruling set to end indefinite detention for some asylum seekers.

“Due to a production error, incorrect footage was inadvertently included of a high school rather than a detention centre. ABC News apologises for the error,”  said ABC.

Last week ABC apologised for incorrectly using footage of a hospital incident in Egypt from ten years ago, in a story about Israeli military operations at al Shifa hospital in Gaza.
