A Palestinian inspects the home of the Abu Jaber family that was demolished by the Israeli military in east Jerusalem, Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015. The Israeli military on Tuesday demolished homes of two Palestinian militants in east Jerusalem, one of which belonged to family of Ghassan Abu Jaber who killed four worshippers in an attack on a synagogue last year. Although Ghassan Abu Jaber was immediately killed, Israel often carries out such demolitions of the homes of militants' families, believing it will deter future attacks. (AP Photo/Mahmoud Illean)RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — A relative of one of five Palestinians arrested by Israel over the killing of an Israeli couple in the West Bank says troops took measurements of their homes in an apparent prelude to demolishing them.

Amara Essy, candidate for the 2015 presidential election and member of the ruling coalition of RHDP attends a news conference in AbidjanFormer Ivory Coast foreign minister turned opposition candidate Amara Essy said on Tuesday he had suspended his participation in this month's presidential election, saying the process was undemocratic and dominated by the incumbent. President Alassane Ouattara is heavily favoured to win re-election in the Oct. 25 ballot, meant to draw a line under a decade-long crisis that ended in a civil war that killed over 3,000 people after the last presidential vote in 2010. Essy, a member of the National Coalition for Change (CNC) opposition bloc, stopped short of saying he would boycott the election, but said his participation was conditional upon certain demands being addressed by the government.
