Error (BBC World Service, Newshour, Lyse Doucet, 8/2/13): "And yet we’ve never heard Mr. Netanyahu describe [Mahmoud Abbas] as a partner for peace.”

Correction (12/18/08): The Western, or Wailing, Wall, is one of the holiest places in Judaism.

Error (BBC Web site, 7/3/08): ... Iran is not making highly enriched uranium suitable for a weapon, only low-enriched uranium useable as nuclear power fuel.

Correction (Updated story, 8/28/08): ... Iran is not, openly at least, making highly enriched uranium suitable for a weapon, only low-enriched uranium useable as nuclear power fuel. ...

(Further update 28 August: it has been pointed out that some people are sceptical of the claim by Iran that it is enriching only to low values. For example, the US National Intelligence Estimate stated: "We assess with moderate confidence that Iran probably would use covert facilities rather than its declared nuclear sites for the production of highly enriched uranium for a weapon."

And the former head of Israeli Military Intelligence Maj-Gen Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash told the Jerusalem Post that, recognising that the international community had discovered their covert programme (in 2002), the Iranians set about hiding its traces, but then resumed their activities.)
