NPR's Peter Kenyon reports from Jerusalem on the death yesterday of Mahmoud Abu Hanoud, a leader of the group Hamas. He and two others were killed by Israeli rockets. Hamas is promising to avenge his death. (3:15) (please note: this story wil be corrected on air on Weekend Edition Saturday on Jan. 12, 2002: "A correction on a story that aired on this show last November. In the introduction to a story about Palestinian farmers and the frictions between them and Israeli settlers, we stated that 'a Palestinian girl was shot dead by settlers as she picked olives.' Reports by other news organizations attributed the shooting to Israeli soldiers. We have been unable to verify that settlers did the shooting and should not have stated that as fact.")
