Associated bans phrase "Polish death camps"

Great news from The Kosciuszko Foundation:

The Associated Press has joined The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle and Yahoo! Inc., in changing their Stylebook regarding concentration camps. According to David Minthorn, Deputy Standards Editor and AP Stylebook co-editor, the new entry in The AP Stylebook reads as follows:
concentration camps For World War II camps in countries occupied by Nazi Germany, do not use phrases like Polish death camps that confuse the location and the perpetrators. Use instead, for example, death camps in Nazi-occupied Poland.
