Head of pre-military academy speaks out on fatal school trip

Yuval Kahan, principal of the Bnei Zion pre-military academy that saw ten of its students killed on a fatal field trip to Israel's south last week, spoke out on Sunday through his lawyer.
Kahan's lawyers released a statement Sunday evening saying: "Yuval is hurt and his heart is torn because of the terrible tragedy and the loss of the lives of the girls and the boy, his students and those who were going to study in the academy. Our position is that it would not be appropriate, at this time, to relate to the various publications in the media, and only to emphasize that they do not reflect things as they are. Yuval is fully cooperating with the investigative authorities, out of a desire that the enforcement authorities examine the matter thoroughly and reach the truth. "
Two of the injured students were still being treated at Soroka hospital, and and doctors said Sunday that they were in stable condition.
