FOX television in the US will withdraw scenes from future replays of 24: Legacy‘s fourth episode after producers apologised for using footage of a terrorist attack in Kenya.
The footage from the September 2013 attack on Westgate mall in Kenya’s capital was used to depict a fictional terror attack in Egypt.
67 people died as a result of the attack in Kenya.
Producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto in a statement, “We regretfully included news footage of an attack in Nairobi. It will be removed from all future broadcasts and versions of the show,.
In the statement said they apologised “for any pain caused to the victims and their families and are deeply sorry.”
But the episode is due to air in Australia on TEN this Sunday night, in the second of two episodes screening.
TEN is yet to advise of any changes to its playout.
No word how removing scenes will affect the show’s very own ticking clock….
