CAMERA Prompts BBC Correction on Rafah

As noted by CAMERA's blog yesterday, a BBC caption on the "In pictures" section incorrectly stated that Palestinians "took back" control of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt. CAMERA staff notified BBC editors about the error, and the caption was corrected. The error and correction follow:

Error (BBC Web site, "In pictures" caption, 11/26/05): For the first time in nearly 40 years, Palestinians took back control of the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. (Emphasis added.)

Correction (11/28/05): Palestinians took control of the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt for the first time. The crossing is a vital gateway to the outside world for Gaza's residents and the strip's economy. (Emphasis added.)
