Beaten US Teen in Israel 8 MIN, 26 SEC

Tensions are running high in Israel and the West Bank today as Israelis and Palestinians alike mourn the deaths of teenagers from each group. American teenager Tariq Abu Khdeir says he was beaten by Israeli police as he protested the killing of his 16-year-old Palestinian cousin in the West Bank. Tariq’s cousin was kidnapped and burned to death last week. The murder is said to be a revenge killing after the bodies of three Israeli teengagers were found in a West Bank field. Now, Rocket fire from the Gaza Strip into Israel increased over the weekend. And an Israeli airstrike killed 8 people in Gaza.

Deep Dive 14 MIN, 25 SEC

Some 70 percent  of the earth’s surface is covered by water. Most of us have never spent much time below the ocean’s glittering surface. Those who do, usually go down with oxygen tanks and weight belts and all kinds of equipment. But it’s possible to see a lot -- perhaps more -- by just taking a breath and diving in…no scuba gear.

Sharks! 6 MIN, 49 SEC
