Relatives of Palestinian fisherman Tawfiq Abu Reyala, 34, whom medics said was killed by Israeli navy, mourn during his funeral at Shatti refugee camp in Gaza City March 7, 2015. The Israeli navy opened fire on boats off the coast of the Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing Abu Reyala, Gaza hospital officials said. Citing security concerns, Israel keeps a naval blockade on Gaza, which is ruled by the Islamist Hamas movement, and has designated a six nautical-mile fishing zone off the enclave's coast. An Israeli military spokeswoman said four vessels had strayed from the fishing zone and that the Israeli army opened fire after the boats did not heed calls to halt. Photo by Ashraf Amra
