AP Revises Misleading Passage


CAMERA staff prompted the following revision of an Associated Press news story mentioning the death of a Hamas member. The story initially relayed the Palestinian account of the death as fact. The updated version shows that the circumstances surrounding the death are disputed.

Error (Associated Press, Ibrahim Barzak, 5/18/05): The Palestinian fire was apparent retaliation for the killing of a Hamas militant by Israelis before day break Wednesday.

Correction (Updated story, 5/19/05): Palestinian hospital officials said a second Hamas member was shot in the head by Israeli soldiers. The Israeli military said he died handling an explosive device.
