CAMERA Prompts Correction to Gaza Population Error in San Diego Union-Tribune

CAMERA staff elicited the following correction to a San Diego Union-Tribune Op-Ed by Miko Peled, which wrongly claimed Gaza is the most densely populated place in the world.
Error (San Diego Union-Tribune, column by Miko Peled, 1/2/09): The people of Gaza live in a population density of 8,000 people per square mile, the highest in the world

Correction (1/15/09): A Jan. 2 Opinion page column by Miko Peled, “Recognizing good people in Gaza,” incorrectly stated that the population density in Gaza is the highest in the world. In fact, there are several areas with a higher population density, including Singapore and Hong Kong.
