An article in yesterday's editions about the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Syria misstated the time of the attack. It occurred at 10:10 a.m.

In some editions yesterday, an article on legislative races in Baltimore County incorrectly identified one of the candidates in the Democratic primary for the House of Delegates in the 8th District. Del. Eric M. Bromwell was the top vote-getter in that race, according to the county election board's unofficial results.

A headline on a brief article in yesterday's Maryland section incorrectly stated that eight Baltimore residents were fined for failing to drain standing water that served as potential breeding grounds for mosquitos bearing West Nile virus. In fact, the city Health Department issued citations that threatened fines unless the residents removed the hazards. Fines had not been imposed.

An article in Monday's editions said that John Andre was a traitor during the Revolutionary War. He was actually a British officer executed as a spy.

The Sun regrets the errors.
