AP Clarifies Jordan Refugee Numbers


The Associated Press published the following clarification after CAMERA noted that its language dramatically inflated the number of Palestinian refugees who took refuge in Jordan: 

Error (AP, Jamal Halaby, 12/11/10): There is a long history of violence between supporters of the two teams, stemming in part from the decades of tension with Jordan's large Palestinian population, which includes an estimated 1.8 million refugees displaced after Israel's 1948 creation and their descendants.

Correction (12/15/10): Clarification: In a Dec. 11 story about a brawl at a soccer game in Jordan, The Associated Press referred to Jordan's large Palestinian population that includes an estimated 1.8 million refugees displaced after Israel's 1948 creation and their descendants. The story should have made clear that the figure includes people who are either refugees displaced after Israel's 1948 creation or descendants of those refugees.
