Israeli police brutally beat, detain Florida teen while he was watching protests over slaying of Palestinian cousin: family

A U.S. teen mourning the apparent payback murder of a Palestinian cousin was beaten and arrested by Israeli police in the days before the slain boy’s funeral, officials said.

Tariq Khdeir, 15, was visited while in custody Saturday by an official from the American consulate, the State Department announced in a statement.

“We are profoundly troubled by reports that he was severely beaten while in police custody and strongly condemn any excessive use of force,” said spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
