What's up at the Financial Times?

This is bizarre. Here's an Iranian account of Prime Minister Erdogan's victory speech.
In his victory speech, Erdogan alluded to Turkey's aspiration to be a voice in the West for the Middle Eastern region and Muslims, saying Bosnians, Lebanese, Syrians and Palestinians also benefited from his victory.

'Believe me, Sarajevo won today as much as Istanbul, Beirut won as much as Izmir, Damascus won as much as Ankara, Ramallah, Nablus, Jenin, the West Bank, Jerusalem won as much as Diyarbakir.'
And here's the Financial Times' account of the same speech.
In a bombastic victory speech, Mr Erdogan nonetheless laid claim to a bigger role in regional affairs, saying the election result was a victory “for Bosnia as much as Istanbul, Beirut as much as Izmir, Damascus as much as Ankara”.
Notice what's missing? Hmmm. By the way, Diyarbakir is an important city in Kurdistan.
