Border police officer charged with manslaughter

An Israeli border police officer who shot dead an east Jerusalem man during a routine arrest operation which turned violent last month will be charged with manslaughter, a Justice Ministry spokeswoman said Thursday. The fatal November 9 shooting, which spurred a night of Arab rioting, was found to have been unjustified by a ministry investigation. The officer, who has been suspended from active duty, will be indicted this month.
