        Ahmed Khatib, a Palestinian boy living with his family in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank, was killed by the Israeli army in 2005 when soldiers thought the toy gun with which he was playing was an assault rifle. In this video from Wide Angle, Ismael Khatib, Ahmed's father, decides what to do with his 12-year old son's organs and highlights the reactions of Druze, Bedouin and Orthodox Jewish families who received them.
