The Israeli military yesterday began obliging foreigners entering the Gaza Strip to sign waivers absolving the army from responsibility if it shoots them. Visitors must also declare that they are not peace activists.

The move came hours before an autopsy on James Miller – the British cameraman killed in a Gaza refugee camp – confirmed that he was almost certainly killed by an Israeli soldier, despite the army’s assertions to the contrary.
