A teenager from the central region committed suicide after speaking with his friends on Facebook who convinced him to carry out the act, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.

The boy's body was found on Tuesday by family members at his home.

During a chat session on the social networking website, one of the boy's friends told him to put an end to his life. Parts of the chat were erased by the teenagers after they were informed that he actually acted on their calls to commit suicide.
