In an article on 28 August we published a suggestion that the party Mr Rachid Ghannouchi leads, An Nahda, which is the leading party in the Tunisian government, had been offered a large sum by the Emir of Qatar before the Tunisian elections. We wish to make it clear that Mr Ghannouchi and his party have not accepted any donation from a foreign state in breach of Tunisian party funding laws. We apologise to Mr Ghannouchi.
