According to a report by CNN's Robert Mahoney, claims that Israel needs to be held responsible for the death of Palestinian journalist Yasser Murtaja while he was covering protests at the Gaza-Israel border fence.

The 30 year-old freelance photographer and documentarian was reportedly wearing a flak jacket with the word "PRESS" emblazoned across it, and was shot by a single bullet in his side, where a vest provides no protection.
