Indictments Filed in Abu Khder Murder

Israeli prosecutors indicted three Jews on Thursday over the kidnapping and murder of a Jerusalem Arab teenager who was burned to death this month, the justice ministry said.

The three Israeli youths face separate charges over the attempted kidnapping of another Palestinian, aged seven, from a nearby northern Jerusalem neighborhood, as well as alleged arson attacks on Palestinian-owned cars. Two of them are also accused of setting alight a shop in the Palestinian Authority town of Hizme.
