Clerk Beaten, Called bin Laden's Brother

11/19/2002
EASTON, Mass. -- Three men allegedly beat a Pakistani convenience store clerk, calling him a terrorist and a relative of Osama bin Laden.

The incident comes in the wake of government intelligence officials concluding that the voice on a tape broadcasted on Arab television last week was, indeed, Osama bin Laden.

Police arrested Miguel Camargo, Jamie Roldan, and Phe Meas, and charged them with assault and battery and civil rights violations. The men allegedly assaulted the clerk, a 31-year-old man whose name was not released, after entering an Easton, Mass. 7-Eleven store at 2 a.m. Saturday, the Associated Press reported.

According to police, the men allegedly kicked and punched the clerk after he tried to evict them from the store. The group also called the clerk bin Laden's brother. The clerk was treated for cuts and bruises and was released.
