Some explanatory information was omitted from an article yesterday on developments in the Mideast. The item should have read:

Iyad al-Sarraj, a leading Palestinian human rights activist, said Palestinian officials told him he had been banned by Israel from traveling to Norway for a conference on "Citizenship and the State in the Middle East."

But a spokesman for Israel's civil administration in Gaza denied that any Israeli restrictions had been imposed on Sarraj, who has been jailed twice by the Palestinian authority after attacking its human rights record. He said he could find no record of any visa request and would have no problem with one.
