A 40-year-old Israeli man was under arrest Wednesday for allegedly sexually molesting his two young nephews for seven years with the knowledge of their parents, police said. The two children, aged 9 and 4, were sexually molested in their Mea Shearim home by their mother's brother from the age of 2, Jerusalem police spokesman Asi Aharoni said. The children's mother, who is pregnant with her fourth child, heard her kids wailing when they were repeatedly sexually abused in the home but did nothing to stop the attacks, he said. The suspected child abuser and the children's parents have been remanded in custody by a Jerusalem court for three and five days respectively ahead of their expected indictment.
