Police continued gathering testimonies Friday from the students of Nofei Golan High School in Katzrin, in their attempts to solve the case of murdered 13-year-old, Ta'ir Rada, who was found stabbed to death in a school bathroom on Wednesday.
The main direction of the investigation is that Rada was killed by a classmate, but detectives were also examining the possibility of a nationalistic motive.
Late Thursday morning, Rafael Cohen, a 56-year-old local resident with a criminal record, was arrested on suspicion of involvement in the murder.
Shortly afterward, police requested - and received - a gag order on the investigation, preventing the release of any information on the case.
