(San Diego Union-Tribune, column by Miko Peled, 1/2/09): The people of Gaza live in a population density of 8,000 people per square mile, the highest in the world
(1/15/09): A Jan. 2 Opinion page column by Miko Peled, "Recognizing good people in Gaza," incorrectly stated that the population density in Gaza is the highest in the world. In fact, there are several areas with a higher population density, including Singapore and Hong Kong.
(San Diego Union-Tribune, Khalid Turaani, 11/28/04): The dubious distinction of being the world’s “most densely populated area” teeters back and forth each year between camps like Rafah and Jabaliya, each with populations of around 80,000 people per square mile.
(1/30/05): Khalid Turani's commentary, “Enduring on the other side of the wall,” in the Nov. 28 Insight section erred in stating that the Rafah and Jabaliya Palestinian refugee camps are the world's most densely populated places. Hong Kong’s Kowloon district, with its many high-rise apartment buildings, has a higher population density.
