Father of girl who filmed Israeli soldier shooting arrested
ISM report: Father of girl who filmed Israeli soldier shoot bound Palestinian arrested
(title edited for length)
snip...

On Wednesday, the girl's father Jamal Hussein Amirra was arrested.

The arrest occurred today near the Palestinian village of Ni'lin, north of Ramallah, where villagers were peacefully protesting the construction of the separation wall. Today's protest was a women's only event, and Amirra was watching away from the actual protest.

When the Israeli army attacked the unarmed women, Amirra went in to protect the demonstrators, while Victor MacDiarmid, a Canadian citizen, took photographs. The two men were arrested within minutes.

Interviewed on Palestinian TV this morning, the 14 year old girl expressed concern that her family would be targeted by the Israeli army due her film being publicized. Her footage was broadcast throughout the world and has caused shock waves in Israel, where a soldier has been arrested and an official investigation launched.

Victor MacDiarmid is from Kingston, Ontario, and has twice been shot by rubber-coated steel bullets while attempting to take in supplies to Ni'lin during a recent a four-day Israeli army blockade of the village.

The Israeli human rights group BTselem released the original report of the incident and the existence of the film on Sunday.

Residents of Nilin told BTselem that they saw the soldier the following day, still serving in his unit.
