The New York Times on Saturday apologized for publishing an anti-Semitic cartoon in its international print edition featuring Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump.
The cartoon, which appeared in Thursday's newspaper, depicted Netanyahu as a guide dog wearing a Star of David collar and leading a blind Trump -- who was wearing a kippah, or a Jewish skullcap.
In an apology published on Twitter by the Times's opinion section -- which will also appear in print on Monday -- the newspaper said the drawing "included anti-Semitic tropes."
