The owners of a Tel Aviv club and the police have reached an agreement to close the establishment for ten days as part of an investigation into a woman who collapsed in the club on Saturday morning and has been hospitalized in serious condition.

Tel Aviv Police said Monday they agreed to allow the owners of “The Block” to hold an event on Thursday that was planned well in advance.

On Sunday police arrested two men suspected of giving drugs to 23-year-old Moshit Fisher, who was found to have Ecstasy in her system, but so far no traces of any tranquilizers that could have knocked her out and put her in need of hospitalization.

Police are still investigating whether or not she took the drug willingly or if it was slipped into her drink at the club.
