Troops cleared in journalist’s death

From Times Wire Reports

The Israeli army has closed an investigation into the April death of a Reuters cameraman in the Gaza Strip, clearing the tank crew that killed him of any wrongdoing.

Reuters said it was “deeply disturbed” by the findings and was considering legal action.

The army found that troops acted properly when they opened fire on Fadel Shana, suspecting he was a militant preparing to fire a missile after he set up a tripod in a Gaza battle zone.
