Israeli police 'filmed beating murdered Palestinian boy's cousin'

Israeli police are examining video footage which appears to show two policemen punching and kicking the cousin of a Palestinian teenager who was murdered last week.

Tariq Khdair, 15, from Florida, is a cousin of Mohammed Abu Khdair, the Palestinian 16-year-old whose abduction and murder has triggered riots.

Israeli police said Tariq was among a group of masked Palestinians attacking officers but his family deny that he was involved.
