Teens found dead near Hebron: Israel 'united in grief'

The three Israeli teenagers who went missing earlier this month in the West Bank have been found dead.

Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar, both aged 16, and 19-year-old Eyal Yifrach were last seen at a junction near Hebron as they hitchhiked home.

Israel had accused Hamas of abducting the three teens, which the Palestinian militant group repeatedly denied.

The BBC's Kevin Connolly said that Israel would be "united in grief" at the news of the deaths.
