After Palestinian teenager's funeral, protesters clash with cops

  • Clashes broke out in Jerusalem between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces after the funeral of Mohammad Abu Khedair, the 16-year-old Palestinian boy who was abducted and murdered.

    At least 60 people were injured in the clashes. Angry Palestinian protesters hurled rocks and stones at the police, who in turn fired tear gas and rubber bullets.

    Police say they are probing whether Khedair’s death was an act of revenge killing for the deaths of three Israeli youngsters, as Palestinians have been alleging.
