US condemns killing of Palestinian teen

July 2, 2014 7:26 P.M. (Updated: July 4, 2014 10:50 A.M.)
WASHINGTON (AFP) -- The United States on Wednesday condemned the killing of a Palestinian youth in an apparent revenge attack for the killing of three Israeli teenagers, warning acts of vengeance would worsen an explosive situation.

"There are no words to convey adequately our condolences to the Palestinian people," Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement.

"It is sickening to think of an innocent 17-year-old boy snatched off the streets and his life stolen from him and his family," the statement added.

"Those who undertake acts of vengeance only destabilize an already explosive and emotional situation. We look to both the Government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority to take all necessary steps to prevent acts of violence and bring their perpetrators to justice."

Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and killed early Wednesday from the Shufat neighborhood.
