February 22, 2009 17:30

An Arab League delegation is in Gaza to document alleged Israeli war crimes committed during its three-week offensive in the territory. Sunday's delegation is made up of international legal and forensic experts. They will present their findings to the Arab League's chief, Amr Moussa. The Arab League, and its 22 member states, could then attempt to pursue war crimes charges in countries that allow such lawsuits to be presented. Representatives of Gaza's ruling Hamas movement welcomed the delegation at the Rafah border crossing.
