CNN chief international anchor, Christiane Amanpour, apologized on Monday for saying that Lucy Dee and her two daughters, Rina and Maia, Hy”d, were killed in a “shootout” with terrorists in April.

The statement offered no apology to viewers, and it did not explain why it took 12 days coming.

The apology came just hours after Rabbi Leo Dee said he might sue CNN over its coverage of the terrorist attack.

Speaking with i24NEWS, he said, “They said they were killed, and not brutally murdered by an evil Palestinian terrorist funded by Iran, and it’s the typical ‘CNNism’ where they are trying to do a comparison between the victim and the terrorist… Christiane wrote me a very brief email apologizing for any misunderstanding caused by her calling it a ‘shootout’… When you make a statement on prime-time and then apologize in an email to a single person, it has a fraction of the impact.”
