Israeli forces kill Palestinian journalist

An Al Jazeera journalist has been shot dead while covering a raid on the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.

The Qatari-based broadcaster said Shireen Abu Akleh, a well-known Palestinian and American journalist, was killed by Israeli forces.

In a statement, Al Jazeera called on the international community to "condemn and hold Israeli forces accountable for the deliberate targeting and killing of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh".

Another journalist, who worked for the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds newspaper, was also shot and wounded in the incident.

The Israeli army denied that its forces had shot the two journalists.
