TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — In a story published Jan. 13, 2022, about an Iranian rocket test, The Associated Press erroneously reported, relying on Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency, that a satellite-carrier rocket had been launched into space. IRNA later changed its story without explanation to remove the reference to the rocket being launched into space. Footage later released shows it was a ground-based static test of the rocket engine.
