'Hamas to pay' for teenager deaths

Israel's prime minister said the Hamas militant group will pay a heavy price for the deaths of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank.

Israel announced late today that it had found the bodies of the teenagers, culminating a frantic two-week search. Israel has accused Hamas of being behind the abductions.

Premier Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay."

He added the teenagers "were kidnapped and murdered in cold blood by wild beasts".

Mr Netanyahu was meeting with his Security Cabinet to discuss a response.
