CAIRO (AP) — In a story published February 9, 2021, The Associated Press reported that Sayid Ismael Baraka was shot to death as he rushed to help a wounded neighbor, according to his wife and brother, in an attack on Jan. 16 that left more than two dozen dead in and around the village. The story should have made clear that only Baraka’s wife said he was killed as he was trying to help a neighbor.
