Israelis Charged Over Migrant Beating

Israelis Charged Over Migrant Beating

Four Israelis have been charged over the beating of an Eritrean migrant who was mistaken for a gunman during a militant attack last October.
Habtom Zerhom was first shot by a security guard at a bus station in Beersheba and then kicked and beaten by a crowd as he lay in a pool of blood.
A post-mortem examination found he died of bullet wounds—not the beating, BBC reported.
Officials said a prison officer, a soldier and two civilians were charged with aggravated battery.
Mobile footage on 18 October showed an angry crowd surrounding Zerhom as he was lying injured on the floor, under a stool held over him by a member of security. A set of chairs was then dumped on his head before he was kicked by the mob.
