The Fireworks Begin

DuraToday's hearing where France 2 is to screen its raw footage of Mohammad Dura is already generating fireworks. Philippe Karsenty and the French network dispute how much footage Talal Abu-Rahma shot. The Jerusalem Post writes:

France 2's correspondent in Israel, Charles Enderlin, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that he had no idea why anyone had thought there were 27 minutes of footage.

"I do not know where this 27 minutes comes from," he said. "In all, there were only 18 minutes of footage shot in Gaza."

But Philippe Karsenty, the director of the media watchdog group Media-Ratings - and the man whose assertion that France 2's coverage of the incident was "a hoax" lies at the heart of the ongoing legal battle - was adamant that there were indeed 27 minutes of footage. He vowed further legal action "if France 2 remains stubborn and refuses to hand over the complete 27 minutes of unedited footage."
