Prosecutors file murder charges against a 17-year-old Palestinian for fatally ramming a police officer at a checkpoint in central Israel last month.

The suspect is accused of entering Israel illegally and driving well over the speed limit in a stolen car, with which he ran over Master Sergeant Barak Meshulam.

The indictment includes a charge of aggravated murder, along with illegally entering Israel and driving a stolen car without a license, among others.
