  • Israeli Cops Caught on Video Beating a Handcuffed Ethiopian Boy

    A group of six Israeli police officers are being investigated after a video surfaced in which one of them is seen beating a 16-year-old of Ethiopian origin who was handcuffed to a bench.

    The officers, from the Tel Aviv suburb of Bat Yam, are also suspected of distributing the video clip among their police co-workers.  

    The incident occurred in April, when the teen was arrested on suspicion of assault. He was released from prison a few weeks ago after serving a sentence for the offense.

    The Justice Ministry’s police conduct investigation unit is looking into the incident. The minor, who was drunk at the time, was handcuffed to a bench at the police station during questioning. The officers are suspected of ridiculing him as he shouted at them. At one point, one of the policemen can be seen slapping the suspect while the other officers can be seen laughing in the clip, which was filmed by one of the police officers.

    The teen later acknowledged that he was so drunk at the time that he did not remember what happened, and lost consciousness that evening. The next day, while waiting to be questioned again, he heard his voice coming from the phone of one of the officers at the station – and he was shown the video.

  • 10 Things to Know About Helium - Tanzania's New Chemical Wealth

    Enormous deposits of helium--estimated at 54 billion cubic feet--have been discovered in Tanzania's Rift Valley and could relieve dwindling supplies of the rare gas, which is used in hospitals in MRI scanners as well as in spacecraft, telescopes and radiation monitors. "This is seven times the current global consumption," said Professor Chris Ballentine of Oxford University, one of the researchers working on the project. "This is enough to fill over 1.2 million medical MRI scanners." Here are 10 facts you probably didn't know about Helium - the second element in the periodic table.
