Second child detained seen struck down by settler

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police detained a 12-year-old boy on Sunday who was seen on video being struck down by an Israeli settler organization leader in the flashpoint East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan on 8 October.

Omran Muhammad Mansour was taken to the Russian compound detention center in Jerusalem for questioning and was not allowed to be accompanied by his parents, Ma'an's correspondent said.

Mansour was one of the two children seen being hit by Elad leader David Be'eri with his car as they threw stones at him during protests in the neighborhood during weeks of unrest following the killing of a Palestinian resident by an Israeli settler guard on 22 September.

A spokesman for Israel's National Police did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

On Tuesday, Israeli authorities detained a young boy after identifying him in footage capturing Be'eri running down the group of children in the neighborhood.

The boy was spotted in news footage of the incident aired by The Associated Press, Jawad Seyam, director of Wad Helwa Information Centre in the Silwan neighborhood, told Ma'an.
