14 Years for Border Guard Officer who Shot Friend

The Be'er Sheva' District Court sentenced Border Police officer Nir Somech to 14 years in prison, Monday, for killing his friend, Ben Tal, whom he thought was bullying his wife.

The judges ruled there was no justification for the shooting and that Somech's life was not in danger, as he had claimed.
