THE AL-DURA CASE
TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Mohammad al-Dura became an iconic image of the second Intifada, his last moments captured by a French TV camera team. Killed on September 30, 2000, Israel accepted responsibility for his death. But later on, an IDF reconstruction claimed to prove that he had been shot by Palestinians. Campaigners accused France 2 of distorting the footage. One Israeli researcher even claims that he never died, and still lives in the refugee camp, working as an ice-cream seller.
