Israeli prosecutors filed murder charges on Sunday against two Jewish citizens for a July 31 arson attack in the occupied West Bank that killed three members of a Palestinian family, Israel Radio said.

It said one adult defendant was indicted for murder and the second, a minor, as an accessory to murder. A court spokesman did not immediately confirm the report, saying the charges had yet to be formally made public.
