JERUSALEM (AFP) - Three of the six Israelis held over the abduction and killing of a Palestinian teenager last week are to be released, Israeli media said on Wednesday.

"Three of six suspects in murder of Palestinian teen Mohammed Abu Khder to be freed Thursday," the Haaretz daily said.

"If there are no new developments three of the six suspects... are expected to be freed tomorrow," news website Nana reported.

Israel arrested six Jewish extremists on Sunday in connection with the killing of 16-year-old Abu Khder on July 2, in a gruesome attack that triggered days of clashes in annexed east Jerusalem and Arab Israeli towns.
