Murdered Israeli Teens Mourned In Joint Funeral

Tens of thousands of mourners converged in central Israel Tuesday for a funeral service for three kidnapped teenagers whose bodies were found a day earlier in the West Bank.

The three young men were buried side by side in the central Israeli town of Modiin. Mourners arrived in large convoys of buses arranged for the ceremony.

The bodies of the youths -- including one with U.S. citizenship -- were found Monday just north of Hebron in a shallow grave in an open field in the village of Halhul, and led to outpourings of grief and rage in the Jewish State.

Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship, disappeared on June 12 while hitchhiking home.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres eulogized the teens at the joint funeral Tuesday, located near the boys’ family homes,

Prior to the funeral, hundreds of people participated in separate memorial services Tuesday at the teens’ respective homes in Elad, Talmon, and Nof Ayalon,
