Arutz Sheva of Israel reports on the Reuters approach to fair and balanced coverage.
On Tuesday, a Reuters cameraman was remanded to prison until trial for his part in rock—throwing attacks on security forces in Bil'in, where the separation fence is a constant target of protesters.
The cameraman, Imad Muhammad Intisar Boghnat, was arrested and charged as a result of violent riots in the Arab village of Bil'in, in the Modi'in region, on October 6, 2006. A videotape that the prosecution presented to the judge shows Boghnat encouraging and directing rioters in Bil'in to throw large chunks of rock at Israeli vehicles in such a way as to cause maximum damage. The accused is heard shouting, "Throw, throw!" and later, "Throw towards the little window!"
The judge of the Judea—area military court who issued the remand order, Major Amir Dahan, called the case "borderline" for pre—trial imprisonment, but he noted that the alternative of house arrest was not wise, as Boghnat is a resident of Bil'in.
