’24: Legacy’ Apologises For Using Footage Of An Actual Terrorist Attack

Representatives of the FOX network in the US have issued an apology, after a recent episode of the drama 24: Legacy was found to contain footage of an actual terrorist attack. 
The episode in question made reference to a fictional attack in “an Egyptian market”, but the footage used to depict this turned out to be from a very real mass shooting incident in Kenya in 2013. 
The 2013 attack saw 67 people killed and more than 175 injured when gunmen from Islamic extremist group al-Shabbab stormed the upscale Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi.
Creators Evan Katz and Manny Coto made a joint statement after the controversy came to light, admitting that they “regretfully” included news footage of the Kenyan attack in the episode.
The pair went on to apologise “for any pain caused to the victims and their families” and said that they are “deeply sorry.”
The relevant scenes will be cut from future repeats of the episode, however, it is unclear whether or not this will affect TEN‘s broadcast in Australia this Sunday night.
