Civil Trial Begins over Israeli Army Killing of Rachel Corrie

HeadlineMar 11, 2010

Meanwhile in Israel, a trial has begun in a wrongful death case brought by the family of the slain American peace activist Rachel Corrie. A twenty-three-year-old college student, Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza seven years ago. She was standing in front of a Palestinian home to help prevent its demolition. An earlier internal Israeli army investigation exonerated the bulldozer drivers. On Wednesday, Rachel Corrie’s father, Craig Corrie, reflected on the long path to justice.

Craig Corrie: “We pursued justice through diplomatic means, hope for a US investigation, and, of course, Prime Minister Sharon promised President Bush a thorough, credible and transparent investigation into our daughter’s killing. And that hasn’t happened yet.”
