American clothing retailer Gap apologized for printing incomplete Chinese map on T-shirts for sales outside China

Gap took action after photos began circulating on the Chinese social media site Weibo of a T-shirt with a map that did not include Taiwan, a self-ruled island that Beijing regards as Chinese territory.
