Violence in Jerusalem after Palestinian teen found dead

Israeli forces clash with Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem after police found the body of a teenager in the Jerusalem area.

Palestinians believe the body to be that of a Palestinian youth who was reported kidnapped from an Arab suburb the night before. Locals identified the victim as 16-year-old Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir from the Shufat neighborhood. Locals believe he was killed by Israelis in revenge for the recent abduction of three Israeli teenagers. Israeli police are investigating the incident.

Hundreds of angry youths blocked the Holy City’s light rail and threw stones at Israeli security forces, who responded with rubber bullets.
