Israeli lawyer sues Aftonbladet for 7.5 million dollars

According to Dagbladet, an Israeli lawyer, Guy Ophir, has sued the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet for an amount of 7.5 million US dollars.

Aftonbladet had published an article, which included testimonies of a Palestinian family whose 19-year old son had been killed and mutilated by Israeli forces in 1992. Has the Palestinian received any compensation or apology from the State of Israel? No, on the contrary they had to pay (bribe?) the Israeli soldiers to get their son's body back for burial.
