bulldozer from tearing down a building in Rafah, Palestine. A
witness,Greg Schnabel, 28, from Chicago, said: "[Rachel Corey] waved
for the bulldozer to stop. She fell down and the bulldozer kept going.
We yelled 'stop, stop,' and the bulldozer didn't stop at all. It had
completely run over her and then it reversed and ran back over her."
