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

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

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.
