Prosecutors Drop Indictment of Two East Jerusalem Youths for Assault

Security tapes, which the accused say the Israel Police refused to view for 18 days, proved that the arrests were unwarranted.

Prosecutors this week withdrew an indictment against two East Jerusalem youths who had been charged with assault in the capital last month. The indictment was dropped after security-camera tapes proved that the two were not nearby when the assault took place.
