COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER, France (AP) — Some versions of a June 6 story by The Associated Press about the commemorations of the 70th anniversary of D-Day included a passage that referred to five beach landings by U.S.

and British troops in Normandy in 1944. As the story later made clear, Canadian forces also played an important role in the Allied invasion of the five beaches, code-named Gold, Juno, Omaha, Sword and Utah. Troops from other countries, too, were involved in the D-Day landings.
