Hurndall Murder Follow-Up
U.K. coroner recommends war crimes charges for IDF soldiers
By Associated Press
A U.K. coroner said on Monday that he would recommend that the British attorney general seek legal action over the deaths of two pro-Palestinian activists killed by Israel Defense Forces fire in 2003.
The statements came after a British inquest jury ruled that Tom Hurndall was unlawfully killed by an IDF soldier in the Gaza Strip. It was the second time in two weeks that a British coroner's court had ruled that a U.K. citizen shot by Israeli soldiers in 2003 was unlawfully killed.
In the Monday decision, jurors at a London coroner's court concluded that Hurndall, 22, was shot intentionally with the intent to kill by an IDF marksman in April 2003.
