Police detained a 17-year-old girl in the West Bank outpost of Nofei Yarden on Sunday after she failed to arrive for questioning at the police station. Teenagers who were with the girl when police came to take her in for questioning said the policemen used too much force during the arrest, and claimed several of them needed medical treatment. The police responded to the claims by saying that "if there are complaints of violence they should be filed with the Police Investigation Department."
