Rights group says PA tortured young brothers

Sept. 26, 2010 10:26 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 27, 2010 3:51 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian human rights group says two Palestinian brothers were beaten and tortured while they were detained by Palestinian Authority security forces in the northern West Bank.

Abdullah Rebhi Abu Se'da, 23, and his brother Sa'eed, 17, from Nablus, were detained on the grounds of a personal dispute between Abdullah and a security forces member. Sa'eed was transported to the hospital.

In a statement, the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights condemned the detentions of both brothers and called upon the attorney general to seriously investigate the allegations and bring the perpetrators to justice.

(This version CORRECTS location as northern West Bank, not northern Gaza Strip.)
