Marie-Louise Gumuchian, who reported on Africa, Europe and the Middle East from CNN's London bureau, was terminated after one of her stories was flagged during the editing process last week. An internal investigation uncovered "about 50 published stories" that contained plagiarized material, according to the network.

CNN was still investigating, but the company said in an editor's note that the instances of plagiarism found in Gumuchian's articles have been removed.
