MK Taleb A'Sanaa (UAL-Ta'al) on Tuesday criticized what he called a "field trial and media lynch" against two Beduin arrested on suspicion of vandalizing the ancient Nabatean site of Avdat on Sunday night. "We harshly condemn the act, but also the witch hunt against the Arab public," Sanaa said. The suspects, a 47-year-old and a 51-year-old, deny involvement in the incident, in which walls and high columns were smashed to pieces, and paint and oil splashed over the ruins.
