|BBC to air show on Ariel Sharon's past |
On Sunday June 17th, BBC's Panorama will air a program looking at Ariel Sharon's past. Besides watching the show on TV, viewers will be able to see the show via a live stream on the BBC website. Here are the details as provided by the BBC website:
Sunday 17 June 2001
Nearly 20 years ago the man who is now Israel's Prime Minister, Ariel
Sharon, sent Lebanese militiamen into the Palestine refugee camps of Sabra and Shatilla. When they left 36 hours later at least 800 people lay dead after a rampage of murder, torture and rape.
The massacre provoked interjational outrage. In Israel itself 400,000
people took to the streets in the largest demonstration the country had ever seen. Ariel Sharon was forced to resign as Israel's defence minister.
But he has maintained that he could not have foreseen the danger of a
massacre in the camps. Fergal Keane investigates this claim, and talks to key witnesses and survivors of the massacre.
In the light of developments in international war crimes prosecutions the programme asks whether the evidence should lead to indictments for what happened in the camps.
Watch The Accused on BBC1 at 2215 BST Sunday 17 June, or via a live stream on this site.
