Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Aqla’s funeral sees violence

BBC, 14 May 2022
Mourners at the funeral of Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Aqla, whose killing in the occupied West Bank has caused a surge of anger, were hit by Israeli police.

Her coffin almost fell as police, some using batons, waded into a crowd of Palestinians gathered around it.

Police said they acted after being pelted with stones and officers "were forced to use riot dispersal means".

Abu Aqla was shot dead in disputed circumstances on Wednesday, with Israel and Palestinians trading blame. The killing has been widely condemned.
