Earlier this year, the Associated Press (AP) joined the NFT craze with its own marketplace. But, a recent video clip offered in the marketplace caused so many negative reactions that AP decided to cancel the sale.

Daniel Ochoa de Olza‘s emotional series of 8 images that received third place in the People, Stories category of the World Press Photo contest (see the winners here) has been withdrawn by Associated Press, stating that the submission of the set was made in error.
The photographs in question were never distributed by the AP – our criteria for entering work in contests – because of our policy on reproducing photographs taken by others.
We sincerely regret the inconvenience our withdrawal of these eight photos has caused World Press Photo and we will take immediate steps to prevent this from happening again in any photojournalism contest. – Santiago Lyon, Associated Press vice president for photography
Former Afghan police unit commander Naqibullah, who received a death sentence following the murder of Associated Press photographer Anja Niedringhaus and wounding AP correspondent Kathy Gannon, will not be executed after all.
Afghanistan’s Supreme Court overturned the Primary Court’s decision from last July and decided to sentence Naqibullah to 20 years in prison instead.
According to AP lawyer, Zahid Safi, that is the maximum jail sentence in the country.
Niedringhaus and Gannon were in the country covering the presidential elections of 2014 when they were attacked.
