The body of an assassinated Palestinian scientist was Wednesday driven through the Malaysian capital accompanied by a crowd shouting "God is greatest", as mourners accused Israel of killing him. He visited the mourning tent outside the house of al-Batsh's family in Jabaliya in the north of the Gaza Strip.

Islamist militant group Hamas had accused Israel's spy agency of being behind the killing.
