LONDON (Reuters) - BBC World television said on Friday that an interview it ran with a man it identified as a spokesman for Dow Chemical, accepting responsibility for India's Bhopal disaster, was inaccurate.

"This morning at 9 GMT, (and at) 10 GMT, BBC World ran an interview with someone purporting to be from the Dow Chemical Company about Bhopal," the BBC said on its latest news bulletin.

"This information was inaccurate, part of an elaborate deception. The person did not represent the company. We want to make it clear the information he gave was entirely inaccurate."
