In a Nov. 9 story about envelopes containing suspicious powder that were mailed in Manhattan, The Associated Press, relying on information from New York City police, erroneously described the recipients. The envelopes were sent to the French, Austrian and Uzbekistan permanent missions to the United Nations, not those nations' consulates.

The story also misspelled the surname of the NYPD's top spokesman. His name is Paul Browne, not Brown.
