Indictments were handed down Wednesday to 13 Jewish Israelis, five of whom are minors, for participating in a Jerusalem wedding in December that became widely known as the "Blood Wedding." The indictments are on charges of incitement to violence and terrorism.

The minute-long footage of the wedding, broadcast by Channel 10 last year, drew a shocked reaction from Israeli politicians. It showed young men wearing white skullcaps and shirts, dancing while holding knives and guns.One of the dancers stabbed a photograph of slain Palestinian toddler Ali Dawabsha. Another young man was held aloft as he clutched a firebomb in one hand and a knife in the other.
