1/15 A report about the killing of a former Miss Venezuela, Monica Spear , and her British former husband ( Venezuela mourns murdered beauty queen, 8 January, page 15) named the latter as Thomas Berry , but a subsequent article (Beauty queen and Briton victims of world's fourth deadliest society, 9 January, page 21) gave his name as Henry Berry . He was Thomas Henry Berry , but was usually known as Henry. Both of the articles also incorrectly suggested that Berry's father was Irish; his parents are both British. 1/15 In a report about a forthcoming exhibition at the British Museum (Ming mini-golf adds lustre to a golden age, 9 January, page 17), we described the Ming dynasty as a "golden age between 1400 and 1450 when the capital was established in Beijing and China's borders were fixed as they are today". The museum now says that the information it had provided about the extent of Ming China was incorrect: its borders did not extend as far as those of the current People's Republic. * The chief executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations , Stuart Etherington , was misnamed as Bill in a piece about the transparency of lobbying, non-party campaigning and trade union administration bill (Relief as government backs down over 'charity gagging', 10 January, page 4).
