Al-Jazeera correspondent in Ramallah resigns

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Ramallah correspondent for Al-Jazeera International resigned Wednesday, Ma'an has learned.

Nour Odeh was the English-language network's first reporter in the occupied Palestinian territories. She joined in 2006.

Odeh declined to comment on her departure. Al-Jazeera International did not return calls.

Al-Jazeera has faced loud criticism from the Palestinian Authority over its publication this week of 1,600 leaked PLO documents from over a decade of negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian officials. On Monday, rioters vandalized the network's Ramallah office before police intervened. No one was hurt.

Odeh received praise for her reporting of Gaza, which was highlighted when the Qatar-based network won the Monte Carlo Television Festival's 2008 Golden Nymph award for Best 24-Hour News Programme.

Before Al-Jazeera, she presented for the Palestine Broadcasting Corporation, a satellite service based in Ramallah, and the now-defunct Ramattan TV in Gaza, where she served as chief editor.
