Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi ordered an investigation and on Saturday night police arrested “Abbas’s father and his cousin who recorded the video following an investigation by online activists,” the agency said.
The video sparked protests across Lebanon with angry comments posted on Facebook and Twitter, with one user saying he was “ashamed to be Lebanese”.
In the video, Abbas grabs a fist with his fists, punches the other boy, punches him in the face, slaps him and kicks him.
The adults and children offscreen want a more violent beating and order the boy, who repeatedly tries to protect himself with his hands, to shut up.

Abbas, who has a ponytail and the characteristics of a girl, is told to slap the boy and he does, then tells him to slap him in the stomach and acts like a game again.
The old man says, “No, he’s not strong,” and asks Abbas to “box” the other boy. “Yalla Abbas,” he says in an Arabic word that means “continue.”
“When I saw this embarrassing video, I felt ashamed to be Lebanese for the first time,” said one Facebook user.
Another commenter accused Abbas’s parents of “raising the boy as a racist from an early age.”
