• Correction: Iraq-Christian Town story

    BARTELLA, Iraq (AP) — In a story Feb. 11 about Christians in the northern Iraqi town of Bartella, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Ammar Shamoun Moussa is the head of the Nineveh Plain Protection Units, and that the force fled Bartella to Kurdish areas as Islamic State fighters captured the town. Moussa is the head of another Christian Assyrian Force known as the Nineveh Plain Guard Forces, which is the force that did flee Bartella. The story also quoted Bartella city council member Jalal Boutros as having pointed to worries that some Shiite militiamen known locally as the “Hashed” are just as extremist as Sunni militants in IS. Boutros did not make the specific comparison and was referring to extremist mentality in general.
