Israel PM slams 'despicable' murder of Palestinian teen

JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday condemned the "despicable murder" of a Palestinian teenager hours after he was kidnapped from a neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu asked the investigating authorities to work as quickly as possible to find out who was behind the despicable murder of the youth, and what is the background of the incident," a statement from his office said.

The prime minister urged all sides not to take the law into their own hands, it said, as fears grew the killing was an act of revenge for the murder by Palestinians of three Israeli teenagers.
