Israelis convicted over shooting

A court has convicted an army officer and a soldier for shooting a bound Palestinian.

    A court in Israel has convicted an army officer and one of his soldiers for the shooting of a bound and blindfolded Palestinian demonstrator last year.

    He'd been detained during a protest against Israel's West Bank separation wall. 

    As Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports, this is not the first time Israeli security forces have been convicted of brutality against Palestinian civilians.
