BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) – In a March 4 story about the turmoil in Libya, The Associated Press erroneously reported the year of the coup that overthrew Libya’s monarchy. The coup was in 1969, not 1967. The story also erroneously reported the population of the town of Kufra, which is 70,000, not 700,000.
