Minister said to nix condolence call after father of slain man protests

Channel 12 news reports that Public Security Minister Amir Ohana has canceled his scheduled visit to the family of Iyad Halak.

The decision comes after Halak’s father posted a video to Facebook in which he said he did not want to be visited by any Israeli government official.

Ohana’s ministry gives him control of the police, including the Border Police officers who shot Halak, who had special needs and was unarmed, to death.
