Al Jazeera can prove its journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was “killed by an Israeli bullet in cold blood,” the network’s US-based bureau chief Abderrahim Foukara told the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Tuesday. “The network has the evidence and the witnesses to support that position,” he told the council. Under Ireland’s auspices, the UNSC held an informal Arria-formula meeting in New York on Tuesday, devoted to the global topic of the “protection of journalists.” But many of the speakers brought up Abu Akleh’s murder.

“Al Jazeera is considering all possible legal options to make sure justice is done, so that Shireen’s killing does not end up swept up under the carpet of impunity,” Foukara said. “Shireen Abu Akleh’s life matters.” Arria-formula meetings allow individuals, organizations and other non-UNSC members to talk directly to members in an informal and confidential setting.
