CAPITALS — Israeli Prosecutors on Wednesday charged 13 people with inciting violence and terrorism after a wedding video showed far-right Jews dancing with guns and knives and guests mocking the death by arson of a Palestinian toddler.

The amateur video of the wedding in occupied Jerusalem in December was broadcast on Israeli television, causing an outcry. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said its "shocking images show the true face of a group that constitutes a danger" to Israeli society.

Court officials in the occupied city of Jerusalem said 13 wedding participants - including the bridegroom - were indicted on Wednesday on charges of inciting violence or terrorism.

The crimes carry a penalty of up to five years' imprisonment. Pleas have yet to be entered.
