Murdered Arab Teen's Family 'Refused' Peres Visit


The family of Mohammed Abu Khder, the 16-year-old Arab resident of Jerusalem found burned to death last Wednesday, has reportedly refused visits by Israeli leaders, and only took Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's condolence phone call by mistake.

Abu Khder's family told the Arab Ma'an News Agency on Monday that they "refused to welcome" outgoing President Shimon Peres, who on Monday tried to visit the family in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.
