Officer is questioned over shooting of teen stabber

A police officer is questioned at the Department for Investigation of Police over his shooting of a 16-year-old Palestinian teenager who carried out a stabbing attack with a pair of scissors in Jerusalem along with her 14-year-old cousin several weeks ago.

The investigation was opened following a decision by the attorney general after claims surfaced that officer shot the stabber while she no longer posed any danger.

The officer says he fired at the teenager because he believed that she was still capable of further attacking civilians.
