Clashes in Jerusalem as crowds await body of slain teen


RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Clashes erupted between Palestinian youths and Israeli soldiers after Friday prayers in the Old City of Jerusalem as crowds in Shufat awaited the body of slain teenager Muhammad Abu Khdeir.

Israeli authorities set up barriers in the streets and alleyways of the Old City and closed down several roads, preventing worshipers from reaching the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Residents of Shufat have been gathering since the early morning to receive the body of Muhammad Abu Khdeir for burial.

The Palestinian teenager was kidnapped and murdered overnight Tuesday in a suspected revenge attack by Israelis. more
