BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A preliminary autopsy report shows that 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir was burnt alive by his kidnappers, a senior Palestinian official said late Friday.

Attorney General Muhammad Abd al-Ghani Uweili told Ma'an Abu Khdeir's autopsy showed soot in the victim's lungs and respiratory tract, indicating he was alive and breathing while he was being burnt.

Abu Khdeir also had a head injury, but died from complications as a result of being burnt, Uweili said.

A final autopsy will be released later, he added.

The autopsy was conducted at Abu Kabir Forensic Institute in Israel in the presence of Palestinian coroner Dr. Sabir al-Aloul, the director of the Institute of Forensic Medicine at al-Quds University.

Palestinians say right-wing Israelis kidnapped and killed Abu Khdeir, whose body was found early Wednesday in a forest near West Jerusalem.

The murder is thought to be a revenge attack in response to the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teens, who were buried the day before.

Israeli police say the circumstances behind Abu Khdeir's killing remain unclear.

Inhumane atrocity by barbaric Jews. Utterly disgusting and a shame and stain on Judaism

There is something that puzzle me about that incident. One of the 3 settlers that was killed was an American/Israeli citizen. This teenager was a Palestinian/American citizen. It looks to me that the same group that killed the 3 settlers are the same that killed this teenager. Someone knew that he was a Palestinian/American and took only few days to find it out. So who ever did it has to be either the military or the Israeli Police or a group that work for either one of them.

I completely condemn this murder and demand that the Israeli and Palestinian police make full effort to bring the perpetrators to justice. At the same time I demand that Fatah and Hamas immediately stop paying reward money to the murderers of Israeli civilians - this is a disgusting and illegal act that goes against the norms of a civilized society. Either the Palestinains stop doing it, or they should stop lying to the world and admit that their goal is war, not peace.

The person who is paid to write as "Mel" is getting to be too much. It is clear that nobody has that much time on their hands to write comments to what appears to be almost every single Maan news item related to Israel. His biased, inciting and extremely poorly written comments that were once amusing are now simply pathetic. Whoever is paying him should at least give him grammar lessons.

I think that these barbaric monsters that committed this atrocity has sunk humanity to an all time low. Two wrongs don't make a right??? Although i'm an optimist i'm also a realist and it pains me to say this but i don't see solution anytime soon.

No doubt apologists for the perpetrators of this murder will blame it on their remembrance of the Holocaust thus death by burning, the perpetrators having visions of the hapless teens consigning their fellow Israelis to the gas chambers. What a sick, sorry lot from PM to PERP.

I want my government to stop funding Israel's brutality toward Palestinians. This occupation and oppression must end. We Americans give more welfare to Israeli citizens than we do our own. It's no wonder we are hated in the Muslim world and face the threat of terrorism because of our abeyance to Israel's genocide of the Palestinians. Osama bin Laden told us that the reason he attacked the USA on September 11 was because of our unbridled support of apartheid Israel.

Strange. Israel does the same deed repeatedly while we sit and watch and talk about zionism and feel good about ourself coz we done wat we could...just blame zionism right? Why dont we send american doctors to also carry out forensic tests. That way its not just an all muslim investigation. It will also put pressure the us government to listen.

Who will stop Israeli State Terrorism ? This coward crime against a child will have revenge and reprisal. When i see all crimes against humanity carried out by the Jews and Israel through out the history......i think.......well Adolf Yes Adolf...was not too wrong and he has been demonized by the so called International Israel Lobby. Netanyahu should be put on trial at the International Criminal Court NOW !!!!

See what you and your right-wing crazies have caused, Mr Netanyahu? BTW, the three dead Israeli teenagers were allegedly found weeks before the announcement of them being found. Apparently, the Israeli gov. informed the Israeli press of the find but put a gag order on release of the information. Ref. Global Research.

The ummah needs to b strong. Together if the ummah did something about all this, if Saudi helped, if these rich muslim countries helped they could have tought israel such lesson that they dont say "Uff" to a muslim but hold on....why would they help? They are all cowards who obey America, blinded to see what our brothers & sisters are going through. Its all going to get just so bad till Imam Mahdi soon arrives. There is nowone else to help. Everyone is for themselves.

True inhumane and the criminals should be brought to justice just like they punish suspects. The criminals have been identified, now do the right thing if Judaism is to be applied.

@8 - Joe, there is something else that is odd about that incident regarding the three boys; the emergency call; I haven't heard the tape, but have read what was on it. The use of the word 'three'. No where have I read that there were any religious references on the tape, words like 'blessing', 'thank God', etc. 'Arab' Arabic speakers from the region pepper their language with such references, like when Israel bombs Gaza 'Allahu Akbar'. Maybe the Arabic speaker wasn't an Arab!! We pray for peace.

let me tell you, i am not surprised this happen 3 day before that hamas kidnapped 3 teens from israel and killed them. You can have to voices - one for israel and one for hamas... That boy was a victim of the hate created by a hamas action. in this case i think its wrong to blame israelies... those teens captured by israel would be sent to prison not like the hamas militants which would recieve honor for their despicable actions
