The family of a British cameraman shot dead by an Israeli soldier in Gaza met with new Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett Thursday and urged her to press the Israelis to bring charges against those responsible, the family said. A jury at a London coroner's court ruled in April that James Miller, 34, - who was shot in the neck in the town of Rafah in May 2003 while filming a documentary about the impact of violence on children in the region - was murdered. After the meeting, which had been scheduled with Beckett's predecessor Jack Straw, Sophy Miller, the cameraman's widow, said the foreign secretary had given assurances that she would be putting renewed pressure on Israel to bring his killer to justice. "She will be writing to the foreign secretary in Israel in order to put to her the requirement that Israel holds a commission of inquiry to look into the failures of the investigation of James's case as well as perverting the course of justice," she said.
