News Brief


A 3-year-old girl was found wandering at Ben Gurion International Airport after the rest of her family boarded a plane to Paris.

Police accompanied the girl to the boarding gate but the plane already had taken off with her parents and four siblings aboard.

The girl was flown to Paris later Sunday, and her family met her at the airport. Police will question the parents upon their return to Israel.

Last week, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that an 8-year-old boy traveling alone was flown by El Al Israel Airlines from Ben Gurion Airport to Brussels instead of to his destination in Munich.
