Turkish police arrested a teen-age boy on suspicion of murdering a leading Turkish-born Jewish businessman. Police discovered the body of Uzeyir Garih, a business magnate known for his liberal views, less than two hours after he had been stabbed to death in a Muslim cemetery. It remained unclear whether the murder was related to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian violence.
