Newsweek journalist resigns over Doctored UN report

16 July 23

Journalist, Tareq Haddad, resigned from Newsweek after editors spiked a story he wrote about a doctored UN report on an alleged chemical attack in Syria. In his piece, Haddad wrote that a UN report had at first included a paragraph stating that there had been no chemical attack in Douma in 2016.

His former employers say the story was based on a conspiracy theory.
