(07-02 13:10)

A Palestinian teenager from annexed east Jerusalem was kidnapped and killed early Wednesday in a suspected act of revenge for the murder of three Israeli teens, army radio reported.
The radio said the youth was seen being forced into a car in the Shuafat neighborhood and his body was found several hours later in another area of the city, describing it as a "suspected revenge attack.''
Three Israeli teenagers were snatched from a road in the southern West Bank on June 12 and their bodies were found on Monday in a murder Israel has blamed on the Islamist Hamas movement. --AFP
