Correction: Iraq Refugees story

In a Feb. 14 story about Jordan imposing visa restrictions on Iraqi refugees, The Associated Press erroneously quoted U.N High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres as calling on countries hosting Iraqi refugees to increase the opportunities for refugees to settle there and saying 70,000 Iraqi refugees want to resettle. Guterres instead urged “third countries” that traditionally resettle refugees to increase the number of Iraqi refugees they take in. He also said there are up to 70,000 resettlement opportunities available in such countries for refugees from all countries.
