Yedioth Ahronoth apologized its readers and corrected a previous story that reported King Abdullah's dog was treated in Israel.
The newspaper reported the story on April 1st. (Was it an April's fool?). It said that the dog's treatment was strictly hidden by Jordanian officials and added that the dog was sent to an Israeli veterinary hospital during the Israeli attack on Gaza.
Yedioth Ahronoth now says the report was "incorrect". This is not the first time an Israeli newspaper reports news stories about Jordan that are then revealed wrong.
Jordanian media remained silent about the Israeli paper's story, a single exception was AmmanNet that displayed the report on its front page for a short time. The blogosphere was very careful not to post stories like this that, true or not, are still considered "taboos" here in Jordan. Exceptions were Jordan Reform Watch and Naseem in his Del.icio.us Pickings.
