■ Correction: Because of a reporting error, a story in yesterday’s Metro section on a lawsuit against the Lorillard Tobacco Co. incorrectly attributed the final quotation in the story. Those were the words of Michael Weisman, an attorney for the plaintiffs in the case.

■ Correction: Because of a production error, over the past several days wrong years appeared for events featured in “This Day in History,’’ published in the “g’’ section. The events and correct years are as follows: The United States closed its embassy in Yemen (2010); Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of Israel suffered a stroke (2006); John F. Kennedy Jr.’s magazine, “George,’’ folded (2001); President Obama scolded officials about the botched Christmas Day terrorist attack (2010); US and British embassies in Yemen reopened (2010); white supremacist James von Brunn died (2010); singer Lou Rawls died (2006); Ayman al-Zawahiri said in a videotape that a US decision to withdraw troops from Iraq represented the “victory of Islam’’ (2006).
