"Thousands attended Khdair's funeral Friday near the family's home in the Shufat district of East Jerusalem."
Jerusalem, July 6 - Six people have been arrested over the murder of a Palestinian teenager here, media reported Sunday.

Israeli police told BBC that Mohammad Abu Khdair was murdered because of his nationality.

Khdair was abducted in East Jerusalem and his body was found July 2. The post-mortem examination findings suggested he was burnt alive.

His death followed the abduction and murder of three young Israelis.

Khdair, who had also suffered a head injury, had suffered 90 percent burns, the report said.

The findings have not been officially released.

Khdair's family insisted that he was killed in revenge for the murders of the three Israeli teenagers.

The bodies of Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar, both aged 16, and 19-year-old Eyal Yifrach were found June 30. Their funerals were held July 2.

Thousands attended Khdair's funeral Friday near the family's home in the Shufat district of East Jerusalem.
