The killing of journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh: From the Guardian: “The UN security council has unanimously condemned the killing of Palestinian-American Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh while she was covering an Israeli army raid in the occupied West Bank, diplomats said. In a rare unanimous statement, the security council also called for “an immediate, thorough, transparent and impartial investigation into her killing”. According to diplomats who spoke on the condition of anonymity, negotiations on the statement were particularly arduous. China successfully pushed the US to remove paragraphs denouncing abuses committed against the media around the world, defending their freedom and urging their protection while covering military operations, according to diplomatic sources and different versions of the statement obtained by Agence France-Presse during the discussions. The final text merely says “journalists should be protected as civilians” and does not mention violence during Abu Aqleh’s funeral on Friday.”
One Million Covid Deaths. From Statistia: : “More than two years into the Covid-19 pandemic, the United States has hit another grim milestone. 805 days after the CDC recorded the first official Covid-19 death in the U.S. on February 27, 2020, President Biden mourned the death of one million Americans, speaking of “irreplaceable losses, each leaving behind a family, a community forever changed because of this pandemic.” “As a nation, we must not grow numb to such sorrow. To heal, we must remember,” Biden said in an official statement. “The idea of one million deaths in an outbreak is historic in nature,” Biden’s Chief Medial Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said, lamenting that many of those deaths could have been avoidable. “It’s estimated that, if people had been vaccinated to a much greater extent right now, that vaccines would have avoided at least a quarter of those deaths, namely about 250,000,” Dr. Fauci said in an interview with PBS.
