CAIRO – In a July 13 story on the flogging of Sudanese women for wearing trousers in violation of strict Islamic law, The Associated Press incorrectly reported that the incident took place Friday, July 10. The correct date was the previous Friday, July 3. The story also said the women were flogged in public. The punishment was open to the public but the story should have said it was carried out inside a police station in Khartoum.
