(Newser) – A Tampa high school student protesting his cousin's murder in Jerusalem this week is now the center of an international story himself. Tariq Khdeir, 15, who is spending the summer with Palestinian relatives in Jerusalem, was beaten by Israeli forces during a protest on Thursday and is still being detained, reports WTSP. "You can see video of them really stomping on his face," says an official with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has circulated video of the arrest and photos of the teen's swollen and bruised face. Police say the video is "edited and biased."
