Palestinians protest at Israeli embassy in Athens

Palestinians at the Israeli embassy in Athens protested against the cold-blooded murder of Greek Orthodox journalist Shereen Abu Aqleh in the West Bank.

The first participants of the march gathered with Palestinian flags at 18:00 and posters with an image of the journalist who was shot in the head while covering the clashes in Jenin, in the occupied West Bank.


The UN security council has unanimously condemned the killing of Palestinian-American Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh while she was covering an Israeli army raid in the occupied West Bank, diplomats said.


In a rare unanimous statement, the security council also called for “an immediate, thorough, transparent and impartial investigation into her killing”.


According to diplomats who spoke on the condition of anonymity, negotiations on the statement were particularly arduous.


On Saturday, Israel’s police chief ordered an investigation into the actions of officers at the funeral.


“The Israel police commissioner, in coordination with the minister of public security, has instructed that an investigation be conducted into the incident,” the police said in a statement.


Earlier, the US said it was “deeply troubled to see the images of Israeli police intruding into her funeral procession”.
