Verdict in Shai Dromi case to be served today

Beersheba's District Court will rule Wednesday on whether Negev farmer Shai Dromi is guilty of manslaughter in the shooting of Khaled el-Atrash two years ago. In January 2007 Dromi shot at a group of people who broke into his farm to steal livestock, killing el-Atrash. Dromi's indictment caused a public uproar which led the Knesset to pass a law giving property owners more freedom to use fatal force against people who break into their homes, businesses or farms.
