Israel sentences killers of Palestinian teen

Jerusalem District court said two Israelis who burned to death a Palestinian teen in July 2014 were sentenced Thursday to life and 21 years in prison respectively.

A third defendant, considered the ringleader, was not sentenced, opting instead for an insanity plea.

One of the ringleader’s accomplices, a 16-year-old Israeli, received a life sentence while the second accomplice, also 16, was handed a 21-year sentence.

Discussions were held behind closed doors since the convicts are minors.
