Israeli court to rule on Rachel Corrie case

Family of US activist slain in Israel prepare for ruling in their high-profile civil lawsuit against the military.

    An Israeli court is due to rule whether the army is responsible for the death of an American peace activist nearly 10 years ago.

    Rachel Corrie was 23 years old when she was killed trying to stop Israeli bulldozers from destroying Palestinian homes.

    This civil case is the latest in a series brought forward by her parents.

    They hope Tuesday’s court decision will conclude a case that has taken years of their life and drained their savings.
