For a look at news from around the world, we now turn to our Matthew Ashley standing by at the Arirang newsroom. Good morning.
Good morning.
Let's start in the occupied West Bank. The United Nations swift to condemn the killing of a journalist in the region.
Indeed, during a raid conducted by the Israeli military on Wednesday, an Al Jazeera reporter was shot dead in the city of Jenin.
According to reports, 51-year-old Shireen Abu Akleh, was wearing a press vest clearly marking her as a journalist, but was shot anyway.
The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, called her death horrifying, and stressed the need for a clear investigation.
That sentiment was echoed by the White House.
Abu Akleh was reporting on the ongoing slew of arrests by the Israeli military in a bid to stop deadly Arab attacks in Israel.
The killing of the reporter has enflamed tensions in the conflict, with Palestinians and a local news channel accusing Israel of killing her.
However, Israel's leader claims she was likely hit by indiscriminate shooting from Palestinians.
