Israel: 3 indicted in Palestinian teen's 'revenge' death

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- An adult and two minors have been indicted in the what Israeli authorities say was the revenge killing of a Palestinian teen -- a death that helped stoke tensions Israel and Palestinians this month -- an Israeli district attorney said Thursday.

Israeli authorities believe the three abducted and burned to death Mohammed Abu Khedair "only because he as an Arab," the Jerusalem district attorney said. Abu Khedair was found dead in Jerusalem on July 2.

Israeli authorities allege the killing was retaliation for the deaths of three Israeli teens whose bodies were found in the West Bank on June 30.
