Cara Anna

Error (AP, Cara Anna, 8/26/15): In a move likely to upset Israel's government, the Palestinians and the Vatican are seeking to raise their flags at U.N. headquarters – just in time for Pope Francis' visit next month.

Correction (8/26/15): In a move likely to upset Israel's government, the Palestinians are seeking to raise their flag, along with the Vatican flag, at U.N. headquarters -- just in time for Pope Francis' visit next month.

 
While the Vatican's mission to the U.N. earlier expressed support for the idea, it circulated a letter this week distancing itself from the draft, asking the Palestinian mission to "kindly to remove in its draft resolution any reference to the 'Holy See' and any generic reference 'on behalf of the Observer States.'"
 
The Holy See's mission did not comment Wednesday. . . .
 
This story has been corrected to reflect that the Vatican's mission to the U.N. this week sent a letter distancing itself from the draft.



Error (Associated Press, Cara Anna and Fares Akram, 6/2/15): The Palestinian Return Center this week was granted consultative status at the United Nations, prompting Israel's U.N. mission to protest that the organization is associated with Hamas and "promotes anti-Israel propaganda." . . .

 
On Tuesday, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's office announced that Haniyeh had called the NGO's leader, Majed al-Zeer, and congratulated him on its new U.N. status.


Correction (7/21/15): In a June 2 story about an organization called the Palestinian Return Center, the Associated Press reported erroneously that the group was granted consultative status at the United Nations. The move was a recommendation for consultative status, not the final decision, which came Monday when its accreditation was approved.
 
A corrected version of the story is below: . . .
 
The Palestinian Return Center this week was recommended for consultative status at the United Nations, prompting Israel's U.N. mission to protest that the organization is associated with Hamas and "promotes anti-Israel propaganda." . . .
 
On Tuesday, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's office announced that Haniyeh had called the NGO's leader Majed al-Zeer, and congratulated him on its recommended status.
