Petah Tikva court upholds gag order on mutilated bodies case

The Petah Tikva District Court on Monday upheld the gag order placed on the case of the two mutilated female bodies found in central Israel last week, overruling an earlier Ramle Magistrate's Court ruling to lift the order from the bulk of the probe. Accepting a police appeal, the Petah Tikva court agreed that releasing details to the public would hinder the investigation.
