Palestinian teen's death: Israeli cop detained

  • An Israeli police officer was arrested in connection with the death of a 16-year-old Palestinian. Later, the border policeman’s detention was extended by six additional days by a judge, media reports say.

    The teenager Nadeem Nowarah’s father described the arrest as a “step in the right direction,” adding, however, that the officer had not yet been formally charged.

    Nowarah was shot on May 15 and later declared dead after he was rushed to hospital.
