CAMERA Prompts LA Times Correction: No Tents Removed

CAMERA staff have elicited a correction today at the Los Angeles Times on an article Monday which erroneously stated that Israel removed 25 tents from a Palestinian protest camp over the weekend in the controversial E-1 area between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim. The error and correction follow:

Error (Los Angeles Times, Maher Abukhater, 1/14/13): Police also removed 25 tents from the area.

Correction (1/16/13): Palestinian tents: An article in the Jan. 14 Section A about a police raid on a tent village set up by Palestinian activists on land that Israel has designated as the site of a new settlement said that the tents were removed. The activists were evicted, but the tents were left standing pending a court appeal.

CAMERA commends the Times for promptly setting the record straight. Additional Los Angeles Times corrections can be seen here.
