The Tel Aviv District Court found three Arab youths of Ramleh guilty today of charges of sabotaging the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem railway two months ago.

According to the prosecution the three Israeli Arabs dismantled part of the tracks, intending to cause damage and casualties. Fortunately, the engineer saw the damage in time to stop the train and prevent a disaster. Sentences will be pronounced soon.
