High Court affirms: Girl was killed by rubber bullet

The High Court of Justice on handed down pointed criticism of the police and state prosecutor's handling of an inquiry into the death of a 10-year-old killed by a rubber bullet three years ago. The court rejected the state's position that the girl, Abir Aramin, may have been killed by a stone thrown by Palestinians.
The decision upheld a lower court's decision in favor of the girl's family in a civil case against the state. A petition to reopen a criminal case against two Border Police officers, however, was denied on grounds that too much time had passed and citing a lack of evidence, Israel Radio reported.
