Ashdod Police are waiting to hear back from Welfare Ministry officials who have launched an investigation into suspicions that a 10-year-old girl held sexual relations with eight boys from her class. According to the allegations, the children watched pornographic films together before engaging in sexual acts. Police have not investigated directly due to the young ages of the children allegedly involved. According to the allegations, the relations were consensual, though the acts, if proven to have taken place, would be in clear breach of the law, due to a prohibition of underage relations of a sexual nature.
