Four Israeli engineers were convicted on Monday of causing the deaths of four Australian athletes when a bridge collapsed at the opening of the 1997 Maccabiah - the Jewish Olympics. Along with the games' organisers, the four were accused of negligence and could be in jail for four years. Two were killed in the collapse itself and two died later from poisoning from the polluted Yarkon river.
