JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israeli security forces were searching on Saturday for three teenagers who went missing near a West Bank settlement, the army said, amid media speculation they may have been kidnapped by Palestinians.

The three, all students at a Jewish seminary, went missing late Thursday as they were hitchhiking between Bethlehem and Hebron.

"Search activity, both operational and in terms of intelligence, is continuing," a spokeswoman said, refusing to confirm speculation about a possible kidnapping.

"For us, these three youths are missing," was all she would say.
