The state on Thursday appealed a ruling that cleared an Israeli Arab of being an accessory to murder and causing harm with aggravated intent after he drove a Palestinian terrorist from the West Bank to Haifa, where she blew herself up in the Maxim restaurant, killing 21 people and wounding 51. Haifa District Court convicted Jamal Mahajne of Umm el-Fahm of causing death and injury through negligence and sentenced him to 10 years in jail. The state, however, asked the Supreme Court to convict Mahajne of the more serious charges included in the original indictment.
