A state memorial service has been held at the presidential compound in Ramallah for a Palestinian journalist, a day after Israeli forces killed her. A huge crowd of mourners paid their last respects to Shireen Abu Akleh, who was shot in the face by Israeli snipers, while covering an army raid in Jenin on Wednesday. Her body lay in state at the compound as a host of officials, including President Mahmoud Abbas, as well as people from all walks of life paid homage to the veteran journalist. The funeral service is scheduled for Friday. The murder of Abu Akleh has sparked an outpouring of condolences and condemnations, as well as calls for a thorough investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice.
