TV Documentary: Egyptians Shot Israeli POWs in 1973

[AP/International Herald Tribune] Egyptians killed "dozens, if not hundreds" of captured Israeli soldiers in the 1973 Mideast war, according to an Israeli TV documentary screened Sunday. Channel 10 TV showed interviews with Israelis who served in the conflict relating specific cases in which Egyptian forces killed soldiers who had been captured or had surrendered. Film was shown of Israeli soldiers, their hands bound behind their backs, shot to death in the Golan Heights and the Sinai desert. Defense correspondent Alon Ben-David concluded, "Investigations of the Egyptian army's behavior in wars against Israel will find dozens, if not hundreds, of cases of captured Israeli soldiers murdered in cold blood by their Egyptians captors."
