Mecca talks coverage

Shortly after Your World Today resumed at 1900 gmt, breaking news coverage began of an impending agreement between Hamas and Fatah, from the talks in Mecca, to stop fighting. This coverage, anchored from Atlanta by Hali Gorani, with Ben Wedeman on the phone from Jerusalem, caused the cancellation of the 1930 gmt live showing of World Business Today, from London.

At 2000 gmt, World News Europe started with Fionnula Sweeney in London, continuing with this breaking news coverage.

A couple of other notes:

  • During the week, CNN devoted a large amount of time to the leaked video showing a friendly fire incident, with American forces attack a British convoy. When CNNI first started showing the video, the words "shit" and "fuck" were clear left in both in audio and text form, on screen. Later, they were bleeped out. It's not clear if this was an error originally, or an editorial decision.
