Custody of 2 suspects ar

The custody of two suspects arrested in connection with the murder of a 21-year-old in a Tel Aviv street brawl was extended on Monday. A minor who confessed to stabbing the man in Tel Aviv's Hatikva neighborhood on Sunday had his custody extended by seven days by a Tel Aviv youth magistrate. The minor told police he acted in self defense. A second suspect, an adult, named as Aviran Arava, was arrested on Monday and ordered by a Tel Aviv magistrate to remain in custody for four days. Arava is suspected by police perverting the course of an investigation and causing bodily harm. Police say the deceased man, named as Nordinov Nordin, and the murder suspect, 17, had been involved in a long-standing feud, and ran into one another randomly on the Tikva neighborhood's main Etzel Street.
