Killing of Palestinian teenager fails to make the news

A number of mainstream news outlets report killing of one Palestinan child by Israeli soldiers, but ignore another.

    A number of mainstream news outlets have reported the verdict in the killing of 10 year-old Abir Aramin by Israeli soldiers:

    In a civil suit, the court ruled that border guards had either been negligent or disobeyed orders in shooting Abir Aramin with a rubber bullet, calling the incident 'totally unjustifiable'.



    Surprisingly, only the Guardian chooses to cover the case of Iman al Hams:


    An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday.
