Inside Israeli Cover-up & US Response to Murder of Palestinian American Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh

More than six months since the Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was killed while reporting in the occupied West Bank, "there is still no accountability in what happened," says journalist Sharif Abdel Kouddous. He is the correspondent on a new Al Jazeera documentary for the program "Fault Lines" that investigates Abu Akleh's May killing. It draws on videos and eyewitness accounts of Abu Akleh's killing to establish that Abu Akleh was fatally shot in the head by Israeli forces, a finding supported by numerous other press investigations. The Biden administration also recently opened an FBI probe into her killing, but Israel is refusing to cooperate and has continued to deny responsibility. Abu Akleh, who was one of the most recognizable faces in the Arab world, had worked for Al Jazeera for 25 years and held U.S. citizenship. We play excerpts from the Al Jazeera documentary, "The Killing of Shireen Abu Akleh," and hear from Shireen's niece Lina Abu Akleh. "We want there to be accountability. We want there to be justice," she says.
