Israel’s state-owned television decided not to air a BBC documentary discussing whether Prime Minister Ariel Sharon should be indicted on war crimes charges in connection with a massacre of Palestinian civilians by Christian militiamen during the 1982 Lebanon War. Israel Television’s Channel One bought the broadcast rights, but the Israel Broadcasting Authority, which controls the channel, overruled the news department’s decision.
