Suspects held over Palestinian Mohammad Abu Khdair murder*

A number of Jewish suspects have been arrested over the murder of Palestinian teenager Mohammad Abu Khdair, whose death sparked days of violent protests.

Israeli police told the BBC Khdair was murdered “because of his nationality”.

Khdair was abducted in East Jerusalem. His body was found on Wednesday with first post-mortem examination findings suggesting he was burnt alive.

His death followed the abduction and murder of three Israeli students, who had been hitchhiking near Hebron.

Thousands attended Mohammad Abu Khdair’s funeral on Friday near the family’s home in the Shufat district of East Jerusalem.

Hundreds of Palestinian youths clashed with Israeli police in East Jerusalem before and after the funeral.

A Palestinian-American teenager, a cousin of Mohammad Abu Khdair, was one of those held after the clashes.

Mobile phone footage appears to show two Israeli policemen repeatedly punching Tariq Khdair, 15, from Florida, in the head.

Tariq Khdair: “They came from the sideand grabbed me”

On Sunday, a judge said he had to be held under house arrest for nine days during the investigation.

Police say that he was among a group of youths attacking police officers during the unrest.

Anger mounts

Mohammad Abu Khdair was seen being forced into a car in Shufat early on Wednesday and his body was later found in in a forest in West Jerusalem.

The post-mortem examination was carried out by Israeli doctors, with Saber al-Aloul, the director of the Palestinian forensic institute, in attendance.

The Palestinian official news agency Wafa quoted the attorney-general as saying that Mr Aloul had reported fire dust in the respiratory canal, meaning the victim had “inhaled this material while he was burnt alive”.

Mohammad Abu Khdair, who had also suffered a head injury, had burns to 90% of the body, it was reported.

The findings have not been officially released.

Khdair’s mother told the Associated Press news agency she had no faith in the Israeli justice.

“I don’t have any peace in my heart,” Suha Khdair said.

“Even if they captured who they say killed my son… they’re only going to ask them questions and then release them. What’s the point?

“They need to treat them the way they treat us. They need to demolish their homes and round them up, the way they do it to our children”

Mohammad Abu Khdair’s family have insisted he was killed in revenge for the murders of the three Israeli teenagers.

The bodies of Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar, both aged 16, and 19-year-old Eyal Yifrach were found on 30 June. Their funerals were held on Wednesday.

The killing came after the bodies of the three Israeli seminary students were found near the city of Hebron on Monday, two-and-a-half weeks after they were abducted.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed their deaths on Hamas. It has denied any involvement.

Mr Netanyahu also condemned the killers of the Palestinian teenager and vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.
