The US ambassador to Israel has told the family of Rachel Corrie, American pro-Palestinian activist who was killed in Gaza in 2003, that the US government remains dissatisfied with the Israeli army's decision to close its official investigation into the incident, The Guardian reported on Friday.

Dan Shapiro told the Corries that the government did not believe the Israeli military investigation had been "thorough, credible and transparent", as had been promised by Israel. The investigation concluded that Corrie's death was an accident and that she had endangered herself by entering a combat zone.

In 2005 Corrie's family filed a civil suit in the Haifa district court against the Israeli government over the incident. A verdict is expected on Tuesday.
