The story 'Heads roll after big brothel raid', (Vol 13, Number 26, December 17-30)

wrongly stated that Afesip received $2.6 million from the United States Agency for

International Development. They received $62,500 in 2004 and their total operating

budget was $1.4 million. The mistake was made by the reporter. The article also attributed

an Afesip source as saying "only one of the 83 girls was underage." To

clarify, Afesip told the Post that according to a police statement only one girl

admitted to being under 18, but Afesip believes many of the girls were underage.
