Correction: Mohamed Denideni

Our article "Algiers hemmed in by a barrier of steel" (16 November 1995) referred to Algerian police records of a fax sent by anti-government "terrorists" to a Mohamed Denideni in Britain. This was not intended to refer to Mr Mohamed Denideni, a former Islamic Salvation Front parliamentary candidate in Algeria, now living in exile in London. Mr Denideni asks us to point out that he has never supported violence against the Algerian regime but is wholly committed to bringing about changes in his homeland through democratic elections.

We regret any confusion that has arisen and apologise to Mr Denideni.
