Footage 'Shows Moment Arab Teen Abducted'; but Questions Remain

CCTV footage has emerged which purportedly shows the moment 16-year-old Mohammed Abu-Khder was abducted on Tuesday night from the Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina in Jerusalem, hours before his dead body was found burned in Jerusalem Forest.

The video was obtained by the Daily Telegraph, which said it had been handed the footage by the Abu-Khder family. The British paper said that while Israeli police had obtained film from two nearby cameras showing the abduction from different angles, the family had not handed this film to police yet - although it did not explain why the family would withhold evidence which could potentially shed light on their own son's murder.
