Israeli police accused of child torture

Former child prisoner speaks out as probe launched into alleged torture of Palestinian child detainees.

    Israeli police have launched an investigation into allegations that Palestinian children were tortured by officers in at least one police station.

    The children are accusing the police of being subjected to violence while being held in jail, and also say they were wrongfully accused of having committed crimes.
