Palestinian coroner to attend autopsy of Shufat teenager

July 3, 2014 12:25 P.M. (Updated: July 5, 2014 9:30 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian coroner from Al-Quds University will attend the autopsy for 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir on Thursday, relatives of the murdered teen told Ma'an.

Abu Khdeir, 16, was kidnapped and killed early Wednesday in a suspected act of revenge for the killing of three Israeli youths.

The family demanded that a Palestinian coroner be present during the autopsy, and Dr. Sabir al-Aloul, director of the Al-Quds University's Institute of Forensic Medicine, will represent the family.

The autopsy will take place at Israel's Abu Kabir Forensic Institute.

The family of the murdered teenager were not allowed to see the body before it was taken for autopsy and Muhammad's father, Hussein, was detained and questioned for several hours by Israeli forces.
