Britain's top Jewish body has apologised for branding a Muslim charity a "terrorist organisation". In an out-of-court settlement, the Board of Deputies of British Jews said it should not have described Interpal in these terms. London-based Interpal, which raises millions for Palestinian causes, had launched a libel action against the Board, due in the High Court next year. The board has now published a retraction and apology on its website.
