JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — In a Sept. 28 story about diverted government funds in South Sudan, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the U.N. representative to South Sudan, Hilde F. Johnson, told a news conference that hundreds of millions of dollars meant for the government had been wired to private bank accounts abroad. Johnson said funds have been diverted through corruption but did not specify an amount.
