Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui wearing a burgandy head scarf , the sister of Aafia Siddiqui, a U.S. national of Pakistani origin, talks with journalists during a press conference in Karachi, Pakistan. For the record: An earlier caption on this photo which was published in the LA Times misidentified Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui as her sister, Aafia Siddiqui.

The mistake by the La Times has caused quite a bit of confusion and other publications printed the picture (as did this blog) identifying the terrorist suspect Aafia Siddiqui with the picture of her sister Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui on August 5th 2008.

Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui appears to have no connection to the current arrest of her sister Aafia Siddiqui. The LA Times has been a source of information and journalistic excellence for many, many years, to make such a blatant mistake is inexcusable. Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui was in Karachi Pakistan on the day, 8/05/08, the photo was published and terror suspect Aafia Siddiqui was in US Federal Court in New York City, not even close LA Times !
