United Nations findings show that Israeli forces fired the bullets that killed Al-Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh in May.

U.N. Human Rights office spokesperson, Ravina Shamdasani said on Friday; "All information we have gathered is consistent with the finding that the shots that killed Abu Akleh and injured her colleague Ali Sammoudi came from Israeli security forces and not by armed Palestinians.

"It is deeply disturbing that Israeli authorities have not conducted a criminal investigation."

Shireen Abu Akleh began working for Al-Jazeera in 1997 and regularly reported on camera from across the Palestinian territories.

Akleh was among the reporters who rushed to the northern city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank to cover an Israeli raid before she was shot dead by Israeli forces on May 11, this is according to her employer, Al-Jazeera.
