Two Israeli border policemen videotaped beating Palestinians were indicted on charges of aggravated assault and abuse of power Sunday. Four other officers were charged in a similar incident.

David Ben Abu and Tsahi Shmaya were arrested last week after an amateur videotape showing them kicking and humiliating six Palestinians was broadcast on Israel Television.A Palestinian cameraman captured the two kicking the Palestinians in the head, forcing them to do push-ups and hitting them six weeks ago near a checkpoint on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
