CORRECTION: Visa and MasterCard funding returns to WikiLeaks via French payment gateway

Due to an editing error, the story, "Visa and MasterCard funding returns to WikiLeaks via French payment gateway," posted Wednesday, incorrectly converted ¬800,000 to U.S. dollars in the 12th paragraph. The correct conversion is US$982,000.

The story has been corrected on the wire and the 12th paragraph now reads:

The organization has run on its cash reserves at the Wau Holland Foundation, which decreased from ¬800,000 (US$982,000) at the end of December 2010 to less than ¬100,000 at the end of June 2012, WikiLeaks said, adding that its reserve funds will probably expire within a few months. "In order to effectively continue its mission, WikiLeaks must raise a minimum of ¬1 million immediately," it said.

The story also has been updated; the update has the correct conversion.
