France condemns murder of Palestinian teen

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The French minister of foreign affairs on Wednesday strongly condemned the killing of a Palestinian teenager overnight.

"I express my horror regarding the murder of a young Palestinian who was abducted in East-Jerusalem. I convey my sincere condolences to his family," Laurent Fabius said in a statement.

He added: "The perpetrators of such a crime must be identified and brought to justice."

The family of Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir, 16, says he was kidnapped and killed early Wednesday in a suspected act of revenge for the killing of three Israeli youths.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem with impunity.
