Reuters cameraman's funeral draws thousands in Gaza

In an emotional show of solidarity, thousands of Palestinians, including journalists and members of rival political movements, marched through the streets of Gaza City on Thursday at the funeral procession of a TV cameraman killed while covering an Israeli-Palestinian battle zone. Fadel Shana, a 23-year-old cameraman with the Reuters news agency, was among 20 Palestinians killed in fighting Wednesday. Shana was struck, along with two bystanders, as he filmed IDF tank movements off in the distance. Shana's body was wrapped in a bloodied Palestinian flag, as fellow journalists marched alongside carrying his broken camera and bloodstained flak jacket. The marchers waved Palestinian flags and carried small posters of Shana posing with his camera. "Fadal Shana, goodbye, the victim of the truth," the posters said.
