AP-ISRAEL-PALESTINIANS UPDATE


Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 10:00 AM EDT
JERUSALEM


Palestinian protesters have been hurling rocks at Israeli police, who have responded with stun grenades during a funeral procession for an Arab teenager in Jerusalem.

Palestinians say 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir was killed by Israeli extremists in an apparent revenge attack following the deaths of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank. His burned body was found Wednesday in a forest after he was seized near his home in east Jerusalem.

Thousands of people chanting and waving Palestinian flags greeted the body today as it arrived by ambulance at a mosque before burial. Mourners carried the body, which was partially wrapped in a traditional headscarf, on a stretcher through the thick crowd.

The funeral coincides with the first Friday prayer services of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, and police have beefed up security in and around Jerusalem after two days of clashes.

Israeli police say an investigation into the teen's death is ongoing and the motives remain unclear. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has condemned Abu Khdeir's killing and vowed to find the attackers.
