CAMERA Prompts Corrected AP Article

An AP article on Friday by Ali Daraghmeh misreported Israel’s criteria for releasing Palestinian prisoners as stricter than they actually were. CAMERA staff intervened that day, leading to a corrected, updated version which was sent out to newspapers around the world. The error and corrected version follow:

Error (AP, Ali Daraghmeh, 6/2/05): . . . . Israel refuses to free anyone involved in attacks on Israelis.

Correction (Updated story, 6/2/05): . . . . Israel refuses to free anyone directly involved in attacks that injured or killed Israelis.
