A 15-year-old boy was found hanged in a West Bank barn Thursday and that his relatives confessed to killing him for collaborating with Israel, Palestinian police said. Palestinian police spokesman Adnan Damiri said the boy's father, uncle and cousin confessed to the slaying over suspicions the boy collaborated with the IDF. Damiri said authorities were searching for other possible motives. Police said the boy was unlikely recruited as an informer, citing his young age.
