A senior employee at the Israeli national lottery (Mifal HaPayis) was caught on security cameras trying to poison another senior employee, Israeli media reported on Sunday.
The former was documented by the security cameras at the Mifal HaPayis Tel Aviv headquarters pouring unidentified substance on the door of the latter's office.
The building's security guard, who spotted the employee in her attempt, called the police, who sent the unidentified substance for lab tests abroad. Tests found it to be mercury, a highly poisonous substance that is not easily attainable.
The employee was arrested Sunday morning and her house and office were searched by police. Police will request to extend her remand Sunday evening.
