JERUSALEM (AP) -- The family of a missing Palestinian teenager in east Jerusalem says the boy's body has been identified, and the Palestinian president is accusing Israeli extremists of killing him.<br />
Relatives say Mohammed Abu Khdeir, 17, was approached by a car early Wednesday and forced inside before it sped off. A body was later found in a Jerusalem forest, raising fears the boy had been killed as revenge for the recent killings of three Israeli teens in the West Bank.<br />
The boy's cousin, Saed Abu Khdeir, says relatives have now identified the body as that of the missing teen. However, Israeli police say the body still has not been identified.<br />
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas accused extremist Jewish settlers of "killing and burning a little boy" and demanded Israel "hold the killers accountable."<br />
