Amnesty International said the sentence given to Elor Azaria, 21, for shooting dead Abdel-Fatah al-Sharif in the southern West Bank was too light, while Human Rights Watch warned against any pardon.An Israeli military court found Azaria guilty of manslaughter and sentenced him Tuesday.The Palestinian Authority, meanwhile, said the light sentencing only encouraged Israeli soldiers to use excessive force.A senior Palestinian journalist was released after 10 months in an Israeli jail without charge Monday, he told AFP Tuesday. Omar Nazzal, 55, was released after nearly a year in prison and following 13 hearings in an Israeli military court, he said.
