Al-Dura Libel Conviction Overturned in Paris Court

Israel Radio's Paris correspondent Gil Michaeli is reporting that a French Court of Appeals overturned on Wednesday the libel judgment against Phillipe Karsenty in which he was convicted of libeling France-2 TV news journalist Charles Enderlin. 

Karsenty said the 'death' of 12-year-old Mohamed Al-Dura at Netzarim in Gaza in September 2000, on which Enderlin filed a report, may have been staged, and that it was unlikely that the death was caused by IDF soldiers.

Karsenty is founder and president of Media-Ratings, a media ratings agency that monitors French media outlets, particularly for anti-American and anti-Israeli bias.
