Riots rage in Jerusalem over Arab teen’s death

( Palestinian riots over the death of Mohammad Abu Khudair—a 17-year-old Arab teen who was found dead in Jerusalem on Wednesday—continued on Thursday in eastern Jerusalem, with rocks thrown and firecrackers shot at Israeli police officers. One officer was injured after being struck in the face with a sharp object, the Jerusalem Post reported. 

An autopsy on Khudair’s body was also completed on Thursday by both Israeli and Palestinian officials. The results were being transferred to the police. The police do not have any suspects yet and have not stated whether the death was nationalistic or criminal in nature.
