An Israeli soldier who killed a foreign pro-Palestinian activist was jailed for lying to investigators. The army said Tuesday that a court-martial found that the unnamed sergeant who shot Tom Hurndall in the southern Gaza town of Rafah in April 2003 had falsely reported that the British activist was armed. The soldier was jailed for more than 5 months.
