QALQILIYA, West Bank, June 12 (UPI) -- A teenage Palestinian boy was tortured and hanged by his relatives because they suspected him of collaborating with Israel, a West Bank spokesman says.

Adnan al-Damairi of the Palestinian security forces, says an investigation has revealed that Raed Sualha, 15, was killed by his own family, Israel's Ynetnews reported Friday.

Al-Damairi says at first officials thought the boy had been the victim of a domestic dispute but later learned that was not the case.

He says the boy was tortured before being hanged.

Authorities are holding the boy's relatives who have confessed to the crime.
