CORRECTION [Archives:2004/721/Local News]

March 18 2004

Upon the request Sudanese community, Yemen Times would like to correct a mistake in the article published on March 8. We would like to state that the name of the Sudanese boy, who was kidnapped recently, is Ali Azhary Mahmoud Sulaiman and his father, Chairman of the Sudanese community and Director of Sudanese School in Sana'a, had no connection to financial compensation sought by the kidnappers.
The compensation was for money taken by another Sudanese teacher.
The boy was released by efforts by the governmental authorities and sheikhs of the region.
Yemen Times apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the mistake.
