U.S. Accuses Israel Police of Targeting Slain Palestinian Boy's Family

Police deny claim, but relatives of Mohammed Abu Khdeir say 35 of them have been arrested in crackdown on East Jerusalem riots.

The U.S. State Department on Wednesday accused Israel of having “singled out” for arrest members of the family of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, the Palestinian boy who was burned alive last month by Israeli Jews. The statement followed the arrest of a U.S. citizen resident in East Jerusalem who is a relative of the slain boy.
