Books Withdrawn

JEDDAH, 4 March 2004 ? The Education Ministry has recalled one million notebooks from schools around the Kingdom because they contain mistakes, including references to the "Persian Gulf," Al-Watan reported yesterday. A map in the notebooks also inaccurately represented Saudi Arabia?s southern border with Yemen, the paper said. It said a senior ministry official had told the agency, which produced the books to halt distribution and withdraw those already handed out and explain how it would rectify the errors.

Naturally, burn the books. For sure it is the Arabian Golf in Saudi. How many lashes?
