Three Israeli Jews arrested for the murder of a Palestinian teenager have confessed to abducting him and burning him alive, officials said Monday, an incident that helped trigger a week of Israeli-Hamas fighting around the Gaza strip.Easing a court gag order on the case, Israel said the suspects, two of them minors, had told interrogators that in killing Mohammad Abu Khudair they sought revenge for the murder of three Jewish seminary students in the occupied West Bank last month.Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who blamed Hamas for the killing of the Jewish youths and launched a crackdown against the Palestinian Islamist group, deplored Abu Khudair's murder as "loathsome".
