Jerusalem Post breaks ‘death’ of Russia’s UK envoy in rush to post more ‘Kremlin hacking’ news

The Jerusalem Post got a tad ahead of itself with a ‘breaking news’ alert about Russia’s ambassador to the UK denying that Moscow had any role in the Skripal case, reporting instead that the envoy... had died? Sure.
“Russian UK envoy dies; Kremlin hacked computers and murdered ex-spy,” the Post announced in a “BREAKING NEWS” update.

It appears that the outlet botched the headline of a Reuters wire report about Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko’s news conference in London held on Friday.

The slightly more accurate Reuters-provided headline read: “Russian UK envoy denies Kremlin tried hack computers and murder ex-spy.”
