Police in Tel Aviv arrested an Eritrean national on Thursday on suspicion of being involved in a murder in the Sinai Peninsula before entering Israel.

The arrest followed a tip-off given by a group of Eritrean nationals, who walked into the police station in south Tel Aviv's Levinski Street and passed on information about the suspect. The group told police the individual in question was linked to a homicide.



A police team was then formed to track down the suspect. Within hours, police officers identified a 20-year-old man as the suspect and arrested him in Tel Aviv.

The suspect is being questioned by the elite central unit of the Tel Aviv police district.
