A 17-year-old boy was arrested on Saturday afternoon after he admitted to stabbing a 16-year-old Ashdod boy to death earlier in the day. Police said that during an initial questioning session, the murder suspect ran police through the events leading up to the stabbing. The victim, who was known to police as a delinquent, was apparently stabbed with a sharp object during a scuffle and left in a pool of his own blood. He died of his wounds in Rehovot's Kaplan Hospital on Saturday morning.
