Israeli police 'lack evidence' that teen attacked them

Israeli authorities have failed to produce any evidence that Palestinian-American teenager Tariq Khdair was guilty of any wrongdoing, his father Salah Abu Khdair has said.

Mobile phone footage appears to show two Israeli policemen repeatedly punching him in the head.

Police say that he was among a group of youths attacking police officers following last week's abduction and murder of his cousin, Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdair.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 7 July.
