Hospitalized twins' grandmother released

The grandmother of four-month-old twins who were hospitalized last week with internal injuries was released Wednesday morning after being arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of shaking the babies. The parents of the twins, who were arrested alongside the grandmother, remain in custody.
The Tuesday night arrests represented a dramatic turn in the investigation, and come after days of conflicting media reports over what may have caused the injuries.
The twins were rushed to Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer last week, where doctors are still battling to stabilize the condition of the baby boy, who is in critical condition. His twin sister is in moderate condition.
