Army prosecutes 4 in video


The Israeli army will court-martial four soldiers filmed taunting a bound and blindfolded Palestinian.

The video of the incident, which reportedly took place a year ago, was posted last week on YouTube and drew international attention.

In it, troops belonging to the crack infantry Golani brigade taunt the bound man, forcing him to repeat crude phrases in a mock-Palestinian accent.

On Thursday, the army ordered the prosecution of four soldiers believed to be in the video.
