Suspects held over Palestinian Mohammad Abu Khdair murder

A number of Jewish suspects have been arrested over the murder of Palestinian teenager Mohammad Abu Khdair, whose death sparked days of violent protests.

Israeli police told the BBC Khdair was murdered "because of his nationality" - his death followed the murder of three Israeli students.

Khdair's cousin, Palestinian-American teenager Tariq Khdair, was held after clashes.

Mobile phone footage appears to show two Israeli policemen punching the 15-year-old in the head.

James Reynolds reports.
