Four Arabs Arrested on Suspicion of Murdering Jew Released Owing to Lack of Evidence

The four Bedouins who were arrested last week on suspicion of having murdered a Sephardic Jew, Joseph Levy, whose dead body was found in a cave near the village of Beth Sahar, have been released because of lack of evidence against them.

Another Arab has been arrested on suspicion.

Levy had been travelling as a pedlar in the Beth Sahar district, a purely Arab area, when he disappeared, and he was missing for a fortnight before his body was found.
