Pakistan government has sacked the Managing Director of the PTV after the state-run news channel ran "Begging" dateline instead of "Beijing" on screen during the live broadcast of Prime Minister Imran Khan's speech at the Central Party School of the ruling Communist Party of China in Beijing early this week.
During Khan's speech on Sunday, PTV had written "Begging" instead of "Beijing" in the top left corner of the screen. The word remained on screen for 20 seconds and was then changed.
PTV later regretted the mistake and apologised.
