STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - In a story June 20 about Stony Brook University establishing a center for international reporting in memory of London Sunday Times correspondent Marie Colvin, The Associated Press incorrectly reported who launched a grenade that resulted in the loss of her left eye. She has been quoted as saying it was thrown by a Sri Lankan soldier, not by a member of the Tamil Tigers.
