Israel says regrets killing of Jordanian judge

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Looking to prevent a diplomatic crisis with Jordan, Israel expressed its regret on Tuesday over the death of a Jordanian judge, who was shot by Israeli soldiers after an altercation at a border crossing.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office also promised to establish a joint investigation with Jordan into Monday’s killing of Raed Zeiter at the Allenby Bridge crossing while he was making his way to the occupied West Bank.
