Tutu: Israelis, Palestinians should be prosecuted

June 13, 2007 11:22

Archbishop Desmond Tutu said Wednesday that Israeli and Palestinian authorities should prosecute people on both sides who attacked civilians in the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun and in nearby parts of Israel late last year. "Regardless of whether the casualties at Beit Hanoun were caused by a mistake, recklessness, criminal negligence or were willful, those responsible must be held accountable," Tutu told the UN rights body that assigned him to investigate the November 2006 Israeli-Palestinian fighting.
