Corrections & clarifications
The caption to the photograph accompanying yesterday's report 'Old China hands salute HK' on page A1 mistakenly identified Henry Keswick (left) of Jardine Matheson as Lord Carrington. We apologise for the error.
The story headlined 'Jiang appears at funeral' on page A6 yesterday wrongly stated that President Hu Jintao , National People's Congress chairman Wu Bangguo , Premier Wen Jiabao and the eight other members of the Politburo Standing Committee attended the funeral of vice-premier Huang Ju . With Huang's death, the committee has only eight members in all, not 11. We apologise for the error, which was introduced in the editing process.
