Police to probe officers following murder of Beduin girls

May 22, 2013 12:59

The National Police headquarters opened an investigation against Negev sub-district police on Wednesday, after it emerged that officers from the Arad police station had received a complaint from the mother of two young Beduin girls 24 hours before they were found murdered in the village of Al Fura.

Police said the woman told officers that she feared that the girls' father - from whom she is separated – had threatened to harm the girls, but it appears that officers did not follow up the complaint.  

The bodies of the two girls, aged three and five, were found in a house in the village showing signs of violence on Tuesday night.
