The family of Mohammed Abu Khudair, the Palestinian teenager who was abducted and burned alive, say they feel 'little joy' over the arrests of six Jewish suspects in connection with the killing.

His mother Suha said she had little faith in the Israeli justice system.

She said: "I don't have any peace in my heart, even if they captured who they say killed my son.

"They're only going to ask them questions and then release them. What's the point?"

She added: "They need to treat them the way they treat us. They need to demolish their homes and round them up, the way they do it to our children."
