Captain R., who was acquitted of charges that he killed a 13-year-old Palestinian girl, on Tuesday sued Ilana Dayan - the host of the "Uvda" (Fact) news program - and the program's producers for NIS 3 million, Army Radio reported. R. claimed that the program chose to edit the videotape that recorded the events culminating in the girl's death in a defamatory manner. "Captain R. can't be portrayed as an animal who attacked a young girl just to create a sensation and boost ratings," the lawsuit read.
