Reuters Corrects Reference to '100s' of Fleeing Israelis

Reuters has corrected an article from earlier today which grossly understated the number of Israelis in rocket range who have been forced to seek shelter during sirens warning of incoming salvoes launched from Gaza. Still visible in the cached version, the article by Nidal al-Mughrabi and Jeffrey Heller had stated:

In fact, millions of Israelis, from south to north -- not hundreds -- have had to race for shelter in the last week.


To its credit, Reuters has since corrected the misinformation. The article now accurately reports:

But the frequent rocket salvoes have disrupted life as air raid sirens sent people in much of the country racing to shelters.
