Acting Editor of British Newspaper Apologizes for Cartoon

The acting editor of Britain's Sunday Times newspaper apologized Tuesday for the cartoon that sparked accusations of anti-Semitism when it was printed on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, AFP reported.

The cartoon by Gerald Scarfe depicts a scowling Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu waving a blood-covered trowel, laying bricks in a wall in which PA Arab men, women and children are trapped. Underneath are the words, "Israeli elections - will cementing peace continue?"
