The state indicted the three suspects apprehended in the investigation of the murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, the 16-year-old Palestinian from the east Jerusalem village of Shuafat.

The names of the defendants remain under a gag order. They are a man, 29, from the settlement of Adam, and two teenagers, a 16-year-old from Jerusalem and another from Beit Shemesh.

The three suspects were charged with murder and kidnapping as well as a slew of other crimes.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein praised law enforcement for the swiftness with which they arrested the three men.
