Palestinian boy severely beaten for throwing shoe at PM car

According to JPost, Saher Ahmed Muhaisen, 15, from the Dehaishe refugee camp near Bethlehem, was severely beaten by PA thugs after he threw a shoe at the passing car of the Western backed but not terribly popular PA PM Salaam Fayad. The boy is allegedly in prison.
A Palestinian journalist living in Bethlehem told the Post that he and his colleagues have been warned by the PA security commanders not to report on the incident.

The journalist, who asked not to be identified out of fear for his safety, said that Fayad's convoy was attacked on two other occasions.

"Each time the convoy passed through the main streets, young men would throw different objects, especially vegetables, at the cars," he said.

The journalist added that the PA police have so far arrested eight suspects, including Muhaisen, in connection with the assaults. He said the families of two other teenagers have refused to hand their sons over to the security forces for questioning about the attacks. (J Post)

hmm, not sure why the JPost is the outlet. Let's hope more comes out.
