Map Fail by InTouch magazine: Hawaii in Mexico
Map distributed to Istanbul schools redraws borders of Turkey
A CD prepared by Istanbul’s provincial education directorate has redrawn the map of Turkey to include parts of northern Iraq, Bulgaria, Armenia, Georgia and Cyprus.
The mistake shocked even the directorate itself and placed education officials in an awkward situation as it comes just after Education Ministry school books got the dates of some national days wrong.
Reporters noticed that a map in a Chinese brochure about an investment in India showed the Indian border state of Arunachal Pradesh as part of China and also challenged India’s claims in the Kashmir region.
The Chinese ambassador to India told a journalist in New Delhi to “shut up” in a heated exchange over a map that showed parts of India within China, newspapers reported on Friday.
