Here’s an enlarged version of the map they had on their site yesterday:
There’s a new border slicing through where Israel and the Palestinian West Bank should be. Damascus and Amman are in Israel. Aleppo is in Lebanon rather than Syria.
They’ve since amended this. Check out today’s version:
Better, but those borders still aren’t right.
Cock-up or politically motivated ? Call me naive, but bearing in mind Aleppo is still misplaced – indeed at this scale it should be off the top of the map, and the fact other borders on these maps don’t exactly match reality – check out the US-Canadian border on the North America map, I think mistake.
My guess is since yesterday they’ve altered the code for their Flash app to move city markers, but for whatever reason haven’t yet been able to edit the underlying map.
