Israel’s Justice Ministry is re-examining a decision not to prosecute police who killed 13 Arab rioters in October 2000. Ministry officials said Thursday’s decision did not constitute the opening of new investigations against police snipers and commanders implicated in the deaths, but aimed to assess whether the Internal Affairs Unit had been too hasty to determine that there was not enough evidence for criminal charges.
