U.N. Agency Finds Israeli Forces Shot Palestinian-American Journalist


The United Nations office for human rights said its investigation into the death of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh found Israeli forces fired the shots that killed her and injured her colleague last month.

Israeli authorities initially said indiscriminate firing from Palestinians killed Ms. Abu Akleh, which the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said is inconsistent with its findings. The U.N. said the independent inquiry included information from the Israeli military and the Palestinian attorney general.
