September 19, 2011 14:38

Hafia District Court on Monday ordered truck driver Gabi Hen, who intentionally struck a group of people with his truck last year, killing 2 soldiers and injuring 11 people, to be admitted to a mental institution, Israel Radio reported.

The district attorney requested that Hen not stand trial after three psychiatrists testified to the effect that Hen was not responsible for his actions, according to the report. The father of Captain Michal Zohar, who was killed in the event, requested that the court open an investigation into the circumstances under which those who witnessed Hen's mental decline failed to do anything about it, the report said.
