The Justice Ministry late Saturday night said it was opening an investigation into police officers beating an east Jerusalem minor after videos of the beating have gone viral.

Tariq Khdeir, 15, of Tampa, Florida was allegedly beaten and detained by Israeli security forces, according to Palestinian media reports.

Khdeir is the Palestinian-American cousin of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, who was murdered on Wednesday in a suspected revenge attack following the discovery of the bodies of the three abducted Israeli teens.
