(Boston Globe, photo caption, 9/5/02): Initisar and Kifah Ajouri, expelled from the West Bank for being kin of alleged terrorist Ali Ajouri, in Gaza City.
(9/6/02): Because of an editing error, a photo caption in yesterday’s World section incorrectly characterized the reason for the expulsion of Intisar and Kifah Ajouri from the West Bank. According to the Israeli army, the Ajouris assisted their brother in preparations for a July suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, and the Israeli Supreme Court ruled the pair posed a security risk to Israel.

(Time Magazine, photo caption, 3/18/02): VOTING FOR MAYHEM: Israeli students at a demonstration in Jerusalem rally for more violence, raising paint-dipped hands.
(Clarification 5/13/02): In our story “Streets Red With Blood,” on the increasing violence in the Middle East [World, March 18], we ran a photo of Israelis holding up their red-painted hands, accompanied by a caption that read, “Voting for Mayhem: Israeli students at a demonstration in Jerusalem rally for more violence, raising paint-dipped hands.” Instead, our caption should have more precisely explained the situation shown in the photograph: “Israeli right-wing student activists hold up their hands, painted in red as a symbol of bloodshed, at a demonstration supporting the cancellation of chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat’s lecture at the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem.”
