MKs seek to stem spread of graphic footage from terrorist attacks

After yet another terrorist attack this week was followed by the widespread dissemination of graphic security-camera footage and images of the attack, including the faces of the victims, coalition chairman David Bitan (Likud) and Knesset Law, Constitution and Justice Committee chairman Nissan Slomiansky sought to curb the phenomenon.

Slomiansky proposed a bill that would set a fine of NIS 15,000 for anyone who publicizes details, photos or video from the scene of a tragic event without permission and without blurring the faces of the victims or spreads the names of people injured or killed without before their families are notified by the authorities.
