UK inquest jury says James Miller was murdered

A Brtish inquest jury found that the Channel 4 cameraman, James Miller, was murdered in Gaza in 2003. The story focuses on the family's complaints of Israel's official obstructiveness. This is from the BBC.
"The IDF investigations, at field level, have not actually been investigations, but debriefing between soldiers, very often the perpetrators of the crime are reporting on that crime. They are not investigations."

The inquest has heard that Mr Miller approached an armoured personnel carrier, carrying a white flag which he shone a torch on, calling out that he was a British journalist and wearing a helmet marked TV. He was shot in the neck, unprotected by his body armour.

He had been attempting to ask for permission to leave the area.....
