An Al Jazeera journalist has been shot and killed in the occupied West Bank. Shireen Abu Akleh was a well-known Palestinian reporter covering an Israeli army raid on the Jenin refugee camp when she was shot in the head. The 51-year-old was wearing a helmet and body armour clearly marked as “press”. Another Palestinian journalist, Ali Samoudi, who was working as Abu Akleh’s producer, was shot in the back during the same attack. Al Jazeera has accused the IDF of deliberately attacking the journalists.
