LA Times Corrects Casualty Figure

The Los Angeles Times published the following correction today:

'Waltz With Bashir': The review of the movie "Waltz With Bashir" in the Dec. 25 Calendar referred to thousands of Palestinian civilians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon being massacred by Christian Falangist militias in 1982. News accounts differ, but reports published in The Times in recent years put the number of dead at 700 to 800.

On a separate matter, while the Times' Web site has fixed a misattributed and miscaptioned photograph, it has yet to correct details about a freed Palestinian prisoner.

I guess to pro Israel commentators 700-800 innocent civilians doesnt constitute a massacre.
