Family of Palestinian slain by police sees probe dragging on
JERUSALEM (AP) — The family of a Palestinian man with autism who was fatally shot by Israeli police says it took a month for authorities to confirm the existence of security-camera footage of the shooting. The existence of the footage had been in question throughout an investigation that the family says has been painfully slow. But they are cautiously hopeful officers will be prosecuted now that they have finally confirmed existence of the footage. The 32-year-old man was killed on May 30 in Jerusalem’s Old City after police apparently mistook him for an attacker.
