LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Sony Pictures Entertainment chief executive and chairman Michael Lynton said on Friday that the Hollywood studio did not make a mistake in pulling satirical film The Interview after a cyber attack blamed on North Korea.

Mr Lynton, speaking to CNN, was responding to comments made by US President Barack Obama that the studio erred in shelving the film after cinemas refused to show it following unspecified threats from hackers.
