Correction: Iran-al-Qaida Story
Jun. 07, 2005
KUWAIT CITY (AP) _ In a June 6 story about suspected al-Qaida operatives in Iran, The Associated Press erroneously quoted Hasan Rowhani, head of the Supreme National Security Council, as saying Iran had arrested and deported 5,000 suspects. Rowhani, speaking in Persian, said 500 suspects were deported. The number was incorrectly translated at the news conference.
