Bangladesh media condemn Al Jazeera journalist Shireen’s killing


UNB, Dhaka :

Diplomatic Correspondents Association, Bangladesh (DCAB) has strongly condemned the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh, an Al Jazeera journalist who was shot dead on May 11 during an Israeli raid on the West Bank.

In a statement Friday, DCAB President Rezaul Karim Lotus and its General Secretary AKM Moinuddin demanded that those responsible for the killing of the journalist be held accountable.

They also called on the authorities concerned to conduct a thorough and independent investigation into Shirin's death.

In a separate statement Overseas Correspondents Association Bangladesh(OCAB) also condemned the killing.

In a statement signed by OCAB convenor Qadir Kollol and its member secretary Nazrul Islam Mithu voiced deep concern over Shireen's killing and urged all concerned to ensure safety and security of journalists to carry out their free reporting.

Shireen was a highly respected journalist in the Middle East whose unflinching coverage was known to millions of viewers, reports AP.

The 51-year-old journalist became a household name synonymous with Al Jazeera’s coverage of life under occupation during her more than two decades reporting in the Palestinian territories, including during the second intifada, or uprising, that killed thousands on both sides, most of them Palestinians, according to AP.
