Murdered activist’s family to sue Israel
The family of US activist Rachel Corrie, run over by an Israeli bulldozer during a demonstration in Gaza in 2003, will sue the Jewish state over her death, their lawyer says.
The 23-year-old killed at the height of the 2000 Palestinian intifada, or uprising, became an symbol of foreign support for the Palestinian cause and the subject of a 2005 play based on her emails and diary.
“The state should take responsibility for the death of Rachel Corrie. We believe her killing was done intentionally or at least out of negligence and wrongdoing,” Hussein Abu Hussein, the family’s lawyer, told AFP on Wednesday.</em>
It was murder, plain and simple. Israel are terrorists, plain and simple.
