The Washington Post



A March 5 Page One article about divorce in Afghanista­n mischaract­erized the status of some women who divorced and remarried under the previous government. The divorces and remarriage­s would not have been allowed under the current Taliban regime’s strict interpreta­tion of Islamic law, but the group has not declared that these prior divorces are void or that women who have remarried are committing adultery. The article also incorrectl­y said that some women risk imprisonme­nt for adultery; it should have said they fear imprisonme­nt.

A Feb. 18 Metro article about bald eagles incorrectl­y identified an owl as a gray horned owl. It is a great horned owl.
