A Palestinian journalist was shot and killed by Israeli forces while covering protests along the Israeli border in Gaza late Friday. Photos show Yasser Murtaja, 31, wearing a 'press' vest as he was evacuated during the clashes after being shot. He died of his injuries shortly afterwards. The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate reported that six journalists, all of whom they say were easily identifiable as press, were shot by Israeli forces firing over the border on Friday, including Murtaja.
