National News


In “Israel-Jordan Pact a Major Breakthrough,” in the Oct. 28, 1994 issue, p. 78, due to a translation error, it was reported that Israel has agreed to divert 100 billion cubic meters from the Yarmuk and Jordan rivers to Jordan. The correct figure is 100 million cubic meters.

In the Oct. 21, 1994 issue, p. 16, the interview with M.Z. Nashashibi was not conducted by Muriel Mirak-Weissbach, but by a special EIR correspondent in Madrid.

Also in the Oct. 21 issue, on p. 47, Maximiliano Londoño and Gen. Hernando Zuluaga were mistakenly identified as having run for President and Pice President respectively. Londoño’s MSIA and Zuluaga’s MPN ran on a joint senatorial slate last March, where Zuluaga held first position and Londoño second on the list; there was no MSIA Presidential campaign.

Finally, in the same issue, the table on p. 9 gives figures for billions of dollars, not trillions.
