Correction: Jordan-Syria story

RIBAA SARHAN, Jordan (AP) -- In a story Feb. 19 about Jordan preparing a camp in case of an influx of refugees from Syria near its northern border, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the camp site was 323 square feet. The correct area is 30,000 square meters (35,880 square yards), according to Sami Halaseh, who oversees the setting up of the camp for the Jordanian Ministry of Public Works and Housing.
