Police continue questioning pupils on Rada murder

Police continued gathering testimonies Friday from the students of Nofei Golan High School in Katzrin, in their attempts to solve the case of murdered 13-year-old, Ta'ir Rada, who was found stabbed to death in a school bathroom on Wednesday. The main direction of the investigation is that Rada was killed by a classmate, but detectives were also examining the possibility of a nationalistic motive. Late Thursday morning, Rafael Cohen, a 56-year-old local resident with a criminal record, was arrested on suspicion of involvement in the murder. Shortly afterward, police requested - and received - a gag order on the investigation, preventing the release of any information on the case.
