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.
(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.
(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.
