Witnesses: Settlers try to kidnap 11-year-old Jerusalem boy

Sept. 24, 2014 2:51 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 26, 2014 3:34 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers tried to kidnap a Palestinian child on Wednesday in Jerusalem, the boy's father said.

The father of Muhammad Khaled al-Zaghl said eight settlers attempted to kidnap his 11-year-old son while he was walking home in the Ras al-Amud area.

"Muhammad managed to escape and took safety with a group of locals who were nearby," he told Ma'an.

Israeli police then arrived in the area and detained Muhammad for allegedly throwing rocks at settlers.

He was taken to an Israeli police center in Salah al-Din Street, where he was interrogated before being released.

Israeli police did not open an investigation into the claims of attempted kidnapping.
