A French appeals court on Wednesday acquitted Israeli Dr. Yehuda David of libeling the father of Muhammad al- Dura, a symbol of the second intifada, killed in Gaza in 2000.

The court accepted David's appeal of an April 2011 ruling, clearing him of guilt in a lawsuit filed by Jamal al-Dura claiming he had broken doctor-patient confidentiality and slandered him in a magazine interview by claiming his injuries were not sustained in the incident in which his son died, but rather in an earlier incident.
