Violent protests continued Sunday in Jerusalem, part of series of angry demonstrations over the death of Muhammed Abu Khudeir, a Palestinian teen. In recent days, crowds of Palestinians have clashed with security forces in Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem, throwing stones and other projectiles, while Israeli police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. The protests have spread to Arab areas of northern Israel, marking the worst such political unrest in a decade.
