6 Suspects Arrested in Murder of Arab Teen


Police announced, Sunday, the arrest of six suspects in the murder of 16-year-old Arab teen Mohammed Abu-Khder. The suspects, among them several minors, are believed to be Jewish, appearing to back suggestions earlier today that police had made significant headway in their investigation, and that they were almost certain the motive was "nationalistic".

"We have begun to put together the pieces of the puzzle, and 70-80% of the background information indicates [the crime is] nationalistic," a police source claiming to be part of the central investigation told Walla News.
