Top US anchor sorry for Iraq claim

Blames 'fog of memory'

(ANSA) - Rome, February 5 - The most-watched news anchor on US network TV on Thursday apologised after a story he repeatedly told about coming under fire in Iraq was shown to be untrue.
    NBC's Brian Williams said he was on a helicopter forced down in 2003 but veterans disputed his account.
    Williams has often recounted his experience but now blames the "fog of memory".
    "I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago," he said.
