August 22, 2008

Colombia abuses: An article in Thursday's Section A on human rights abuses by Colombia's armed forces said that a report by rights advocates alleged that as of June 2007, Colombian military courts had won only four convictions in more than 900 cases of alleged murder involving uniformed soldiers and police. The article should have included the following sentence: "A Colombian Defense Ministry official said that since the formation of a special prosecutor's office in mid-2007 to investigate alleged killings of civilians, 14 soldiers and police officers have been convicted in connection with those killings."
