Actor Mer-Khamis laid to rest in North

The funeral procession of well-known actor, filmmaker and peace activist Juliano Mer-Khamis was held Wednesday, starting at a checkpoint near Jenin where his Palestinian friends and colleagues parted from him.
Mer-Khamis will ultimately be laid to rest at Kibbutz Ramat Menashe in the North.
He was shot dead in his car Monday in Jenin, where he made his home and founded the controversial Freedom Theater.
A masked assailant shot Mer-Khamis five times from close range at the entrance to the theater, a Palestinian Authority security source said, adding that a woman who was in the car was lightly wounded.
