Palestinians clashed with Israeli police in occupied east Jerusalem Friday, ahead of the emotionally-charged funeral of a Palestinian teenager believed murdered by Israelis.It was the third straight day of violence since Mohammad Abu Khder, 16, was kidnapped and found dead Wednesday in a suspected revenge attack for the abduction and murder of three Israeli teenagers last month. Despite the occasion, just 8,000 worshippers joined the prayers at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound, Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP.Many apparently stayed away fearing clashes with police. The Israeli army reported that four rockets and two mortar rounds were fired at Israel Friday morning.Israeli police say that the motive for Abu Khder's killing is still unclear, and have not said how he died.
