Israeli soldier convicted over shooting Palestinian

An Israeli soldier who was filmed shooting dead a wounded Palestinian attacker as he lay on the ground has been convicted of manslaughter.

Sgt Elor Azaria shot Abdul Fatah al-Sharif in the head while he was apparently incapacitated.

The incident happened in Hebron in the occupied West Bank last March, after another soldier was stabbed, as this video shows.
