International news broadcaster Al Jazeera says Israeli troops have shot and killed one of veteran journalists in the occupied West Bank.
Shireen Abu Akleh was covering an Israeli military raid in the Jenin refugee camp. Al Jazeera says she was fatally shot while wearing a press flak jacket, and accuses Israeli forces of deliberately targeting her. Israel's prime minister says she was probably hit by Palestinian fire. Initially, the Israeli military chief says it's unclear who pulled the trigger.
