Israeli police hit mourners at journalist's funeral

Israeli police have hit mourners at the funeral of Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Aqla, whose killing in the occupied West Bank has caused a surge of anger.
 
Her coffin almost fell as police, some using batons, waded into a crowd of  Palestinians gathered around it.
 
Police said they acted after being pelted with stones.
 
Abu Aqla was shot dead in disputed circumstances on Wednesday, with Israel and Palestinians trading blame. 
 
The killing has been widely condemned.
 
The Palestinian Authority and Al Jazeera claim Abu Aqla was shot dead by Israeli forces, while Israel said it was not yet possible to determine what happened and that she could have been killed by Palestinian gunfire.
