Tension prevails in Jerusalem, amid preparations for the burial of the body of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

The Al-Jazeera correspondent was shot dead on Wednesday while covering the Israeli army’s incursion into the West Bank.

Witnesses accused Israeli forces of killing the journalist, amid calls for an independent investigation into the incident.

Shirin’s body will be buried in a cemetery in Old Jerusalem, where her parents were buried, and large Palestinian crowds are expected to attend her funeral.
