Families of the victims of the Carmel fire filed a petition with the High Court on Wednesday demanding the dismissal of the interior minister and finance minister in the wake of the State Comptroller's report, Israel Radio reported.

The judges sought to make it difficult for the petitioners to present their case, asking why they sought to press personal liability charges on Interior Minister Eli Yishai and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, when the State Comptroller had chosen not to.
