The US State Department expressed its condolences to the family of Rachel Corrie on Tuesday after the Haifa District Court rejected their case earlier in the day, ruling that the IDF was not responsible for her death.

"We've worked with the family all through this process and we will continue to provide consular support. We understand the family's disappointment with the outcome of the trial," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Asked if the State Department shared this disappointment, Nuland noted that the family could yet appeal.

"It's probably not productive to get into the middle of a legal process that may be ongoing," Nuland said.
