The boy actually was killed when he picked up some ordnance
[Police] spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said forensics experts determined the shepherd was killed after he picked up an unexploded shell that blew up in his hands.
He said the shepherd's body suffered shrapnel wounds, and there were no signs the shepherd was shot.
and I wrote there disparagingly: did the Beduin who made the false accusation really believe we wouldn't discover the truth?
But it was worse.
The police were part of the frame-up:-
The police opened an investigation yesterday into the murder of an 18-year-old Palestinian shepherd whose bullet-riddled body was found last night outside a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.
Yihya Atta Bani Minya had been missing from his hometown of Akrabeh since Saturday afternoon. He was found dead near Gitit, in the Jordan Valley. Minya's family claimed that he was killed by settlers, but police said they had no leads on the murder.
"It's still too early to say who shot him," a police officer said. "We are awaiting the autopsy results and gathering information."
Anyone reading Haaretz and other media outlets were already informed by the police that bullets caused the death and who else but "settlers" run around and shoot Arabs?
How did it happen that the police already assumed it was death by bullet perforation and thereby cast aspersion on innocent Jews?
