Palestinians: Arab teen was burned to death

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinian attorney general says autopsy results of an Arab teenager who Palestinians say was killed by Israeli extremists in a revenge attack show he was burned to death.

The charred body of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir was found in a forest after he was seized near his home in east Jerusalem. Palestinians have accused Israeli extremists of killing him to avenge the deaths of three Israeli teens who had been abducted and killed in the West Bank.

Abdelghani al-Owaiwi said Saturday that Abu Khdeir suffered burns on "90 percent of his body."

Israeli police said an investigation is still underway and they have not yet determined who killed the boy or why.
