Three Israelis suspected in the grisly murder of a 16-year-old Palestinian boy, whose charred and maimed body was found in a forest outside Jerusalem last week, reportedly confessed to the killing on Monday. An official told the Associated Press that the suspects had re-enacted the killing for authorities. The teenager, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, was reportedly burned alive by Jewish right-wing extremists in retaliation for the abduction and killing of three Israeli teens have dramatically escalated tensions in Israel. Over the weekend, violent clashes broke out in East Jerusalem and the West Bank between heavily armed Israeli security forces and stone-throwing Palestinians.
