Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman brushed off demands Wednesday from at home and abroad for an investigation into the deaths of two Palestinian youths killed by Israeli forces last week.The pressure came after video footage emerged appearing to show the two Palestinians being shot unprovoked, prompting calls from Washington and the United Nations for a full investigation.Closed-circuit video footage released Wednesday by Defense For Children International and B'Tselem appeared to show separate incidents in which the two youths were shot as they walked down the same street near Ramallah while Palestinians marked the 66th anniversary of the Nakba or "catastrophe" of Israel's creation.An Israeli commentator criticized official attempts to downplay the incident, joining the calls for a probe.The Palestinians say the youths were unarmed and posed no threat, accusing Israel of using "excessive and indiscriminate violence".
