Palestinian boy 'beaten,' detained at Nablus checkpoint

Oct. 15, 2008 11:03 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 15, 2008 11:03 P.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli soldiers assaulted and detained a young Palestinian at the Huwwara checkpoint south of Nablus on Wednesday night, according to witnesses at the scene.

Several Palestinians told Ma'an that the soldiers first accused the 16-year-old boy, Sa'd Ibrahim Abed Gaghoub, of possessing a knife. They said troops then "assaulted" the boy, closing the checkpoint for several minutes while processing his arrest.

It was not immediately clear how seriously Gaghoub was injured during the alleged beating. Israeli authorities did not say where he was taken, either.

The boy is from the village of Beita near Nablus, which is in the northern West Bank.
