STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) – In a Jan. 12 story about a 111-year-old woman who was preparing to take the U.S. oath of citizenship, The Associated Press, based on information provided by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, erroneously reported the woman’s name and native country. She is Warina Zaya Bashou, not Bahou, and she is from Iraq, not Iran.
