Israeli officials on Saturday said they ordered a forensic test to help determine whether an Israeli or a Palestinian bullet killed a British video journalist in the southern Gaza Strip shortly before midnight Friday. The British Foreign Office has called for an investigation into the incident, as have local press organizations. Yehuda Hiss, the head of the government-run Forensic Institute in Tel Aviv, invited the British Embassy to send one of its specialists to supervise the autopsy.

According to footage filmed by another television crew, Miller was hit immediately after a member of his crew shouted in the darkness, “We are British journalists.” Saera Shah, a freelance producer for Frost Bite, told United Press International shortly after the incident that the soldiers had clearly seen Miller filming near the borders. “What the Israeli soldiers did is a real crime because they killed James in cold blood,” she said.
