JERUSALEM (AP) Israeli police say they have clashed with several hundred Palestinians following reports that an Arab teen was kidnapped and a body found in a Jerusalem forest.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says Palestinians hurled stones at forces who responded with tear gas. Security was heightened around the city.

Rosenfeld says police received reports Wednesday that an Arab teen was forced into a car. A body was later found, but police have not yet established whether the two incidents are related.

The events come days after the bodies of three missing Israeli teens were found in the West Bank. On Tuesday, several hundred right-wing Israeli youths marched through Jerusalem, screaming for revenge.

Rosenfeld said the death may have been a revenge killing, but that the motive could also have been criminal.
