(NEWS) Child Involved In Shiloach Ambush Now Claims Amnesia

"An Arab boy from Jerusalem who ran at a Jewish man's car to throw a stone at the windshield and was hit now claims he does not remember the incident. Earlier, he had made detailed accusations regarding the incident in an interview with Ynet.

However, in a more recent interview with the pan-Arab daily Al-Sharq il-Awsat, the boy, 12-year-old Omran Mansour, said, 'I only remember seeing the car coming to run me over, and I don't remember anything else... I don't know what happened, I don't remember.'

The change in Mansour's testimony followed a meeting of the Knesset's Child Welfare Committee during which MKs suggested that the parents of children who participate in stone-throwing attacks should be detained for questioning. There have also been calls to detain Mansour and other children involved in the ambush."
