JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– Rioting continued into its fourth day, as clashes between Palestinians and Israeli Police spread from East Jerusalem to Israeli-Arab towns in the West Bank.

The U.S. State Department confirmed Tariq Khdeir, an American citizen and cousin of the murdered teen last week, was detained by Israeli police.

Over the weekend a video went viral showing two Israeli police officers kicking and beating the high school student, leading to the State Department issuing a statement saying they are "profoundly troubled by reports that he was severely beaten while in police custody and strongly condemn any excessive use of force."
