World News: UN condemns killing of Al-Jazeera journalist in West Bank Updated: 2022-05-12 11:30:18 KST

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now'.

The United Nations have swiftly condemned the killing of a journalist in the occupied West Bank.
This follows a raid conducted by the Israeli military on Wednesday, where 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.

The Polish embassy in Moscow had cleaners remove red paint from its walls on Wednesday, following a suspected retaliatory action for an incident that happened in Warsaw two days prior.
The perpetrator behind the latest incident has yet to be apprehended.
On Monday, the Russian ambassador to Poland was doused in red paint, as he visited the Soviet Military Cemetery in Warsaw.
That incident sparked a furious reaction from Moscow, which demanded a formal apology, and summoned Poland's ambassador to Russia, to lodge a protest.
However, Poland's Foreign Minister said the Russian envoy had been warned by Polish authorities that visiting the cemetery risked provoking an angry reaction, but he went along regardless.

Thousands of angry young voters gathered in front of the Philippines' elections commission building on Tuesday to protest the recent election that saw Ferdinand Marcos Jr. elected as the country's next president.
The son of a former dictator, his victory was marred by thousands of reports of election-related anomalies since Monday's vote.
Malfunctioning voting machines were one of the biggest complaints, with an election watchdog, saying the issue had severely impaired the electoral process.
Despite this, Marcos garnered around 31-million votes according to preliminary tallies, more than twice as many as his closest rival.
Officials say the margin was so large it could not have been swayed by fraud.

After more than twenty years, Apple is discontinuing its iconic iPod.
The device was once the face of portable music and a driving force behind the one of the world's biggest companies.
According to Apple on Tuesday, the only version of the device still on sale, the iPod Touch, will remain on shelves until supplies run out.
Since its launch in 2001, the iPod took on a storm of competing music players before being eclipsed by smartphones, music streaming and the rise of the iPhone.
Since its launch, the iPod has undergone a series of transformations, including the introduction of a scroll wheel, increased capacity to 1-thousand songs, and a 10-hour battery-life.

A passenger, with no flight experience, successfully landed a small Cessna 208 plane after the aircraft's pilot lost consciousness on a return flight from the Bahamas.
According to an air traffic control recording the incident occurred on Tuesday morning local time, when one of the plane's two passengers called Florida's Fort Pierce air traffic control, to brief them on the situation.
Thankfully, a 20-year-veteran in air traffic control, Robert Morgan, was on hand to help guide the nine-seater plane to the ground.
Using his skills as a flight instructor, Morgan gave step-by-step instructions to secure a safe landing.
