An Israeli border police officer who shot dead an east Jerusalem man during a routine arrest operation which turned violent will be charged with manslaughter, a Justice Ministry spokeswoman said Tuesday. The fatal shooting, which spurred a night of Arab rioting, was found to have been unjustified by a justice ministry investigation. The paramilitary police officer, who has been suspended from active duty, will be indicted next month, following a personal hearing on the case, the ministry said.
