According to the JTA, never-before-seen raw footage shot by France 2 TV of the supposed shooting of Mohammed al-Dura by IDF soldiers has been aired in court. Philippe Karsenty, head of Media Ratings, a news watchdog group, had been sued by the television company for claiming it staged the event:

The court, which saw only 18 of the 27 minutes of raw footage, was packed with supporters of Karsenty and the France 2 TV correspondent who filed the original report, Charles Enderlin.

The footage showed al-Dura lying motionless and apparently dead in the arms of his father after supposedly being shot. Seconds later, it shows the boy lifting his arm and peering through his fingers at the camera.

Reactions of the viewers of the new footage below.

After the appeal, will France 2 release the full footage? If not, why not?
