      Camerman Killed by Israelis Receives Three Posthumous Emmys

      Three posthumous Emmys for cameraman killed by Israelis

      By Stephen Brook and Dominic Timms

      Cameraman James Miller has posthumously won
      three Emmy awards for his film Death in Gaza
      - two years after he was shot dead by Israeli troops.

      The documentary about three children in the Rafah
      refugee camp - shown on HBO and Channel 4 last
      year - won awards for outstanding direction,
      outstanding cinematography and exceptional merit
      in non-fiction filmmaking in the creative arts section
      of the awards.

      James's wife, Sophy, his parents, sisters and brother
      travelled to Los Angeles for the ceremony.

      "Three Emmys but still no justice," Mrs Miller said. "We
      are all immensely proud of James but will not rest until
      we get justice. The IDF, Israel's national army, shot and
      killed James; they failed to investigate his killing properly.
      They have to be held to account."

      The family has launched a civil action against the Israeli
      government.

      Death in Gaza was broadcast to critical acclaim on
      Channel 4 in May 2004 and has already won a Bafta
      and a Rory Peck award.

      Miller's death formed part of the documentary, which
      was made with journalist Saira Shah.

      Miller was walking towards an armoured personnel
      carrier after leaving a Palestinian home carrying a
      white flag when he was shot by an Israeli soldier.

      The officer who fired the shot was acquitted
      by Brigadier General Guy Tzur, the head of
      the army's southern command.
