Organizers convicted in the deaths of three teen-agers at an Israeli music festival five years ago were given jail sentences of up to a year. The three teens were smothered by a crowd of concert-goers trying to get into an oversold performance at the Arad festival. The five organizers of the event were convicted of selling more tickets than the stadium could handle and of poor safety preparations.
