As reported by Headlines and Deadlines on Tuesday, The Toronto, and Winnipeg Sun erroneously claimed that Yasser Arafat died in 2003, however the death of this ruthless terrorist occured on Rememberance Day on November 11 2004.
HonestReporting Canada brought the errors to the attention of the paper’s editors who issued the following corrections:
Winnipeg Sun: Correction:
?An Associated Press story on page 10 of Tuesday’s Winnipeg Sun contained incorrect information. It stated Yasser Arafat died on Nov. 11, 2003, when he died on Nov. 11, 2004. The Sun regrets the error.?
Toronto Sun: Correction:
?Due to an editing error, the wrong year for Yasser Arafat’s death was inserted in a story published Tuesday by The Associated Press. The wrong date was repeated under a photo of Arafat. He died in 2004, not 2003.?
