2 Grenada police detained after Canadian's death

Authorities in Grenada say they have detained two policemen and reassigned all the officers at a police station where a Toronto man allegedly was beaten to death.
Police Commissioner Willan Thompson says the two unidentified officers have not been charged but are being questioned about the death of 39-year-old Oscar Bartholomew.
Relatives have accused officers of beating Bartholomew into a coma on Monday after he mistook a plainclothes female police officer for a friend and lifted her off the ground in a hug. Bartholomew died Tuesday.
Thompson said Thursday that all the officers at the St. David's police station have been reassigned to unspecified positions.
