Israeli police charged at crowds of mourners, including those carrying the coffin of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, at the start of her funeral procession in Jerusalem on Friday.

Abu Akleh, who had covered Palestinian affairs and the Middle East for more than two decades, was shot and killed during an Israeli raid in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday.

Palestinian authorities called Abu Akleh's killing an assassination by Israeli forces. Israel's government initially suggested Palestinian fire might have been to blame, but officials have also said they could not rule out that Israeli gunfire killed her.
