The Tampa teenager who was beat up by Israeli police last month shortly after his cousin was killed in the West Bank was sentenced to house arrest while recovering from his injuries. I sat down with Tariq Abukhdeir last week at his house and asked what it was like to be sentenced to house arrest.

I asked his mother, Suha Abukhdeir about Tariq’s injuries.
