The court trial for Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist killed aged 23 by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza in 2003, has begun in Haifa.

She was peacefully protesting against Israel's demolition of Palestian homes when the bulldozer crushed her to death.

The parents of Corrie are now suing the government of Israel on charges that she was "denied basic human rights" and of "gross negligence".

Israel says the driver could not see the activist and it was an honest mistake.

Al Jazeera spoke to her parents, Craig and Cindy Corrie, about their daughter's death in an exclusive interview.
