A two-year-old boy was killed yesterday when he was run over by a car in the Galilee village of Majdal Krum. The death is another in a string of such incidents in Arab villages.

From an initial investigation, it appears the boy was struck and critically injured when a cousin, who was driving the car involved, failed to see the boy.

The victim was pronounced dead on arrival at Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya.

Several months ago, a child from the same extended family lost a leg after being run over by a relative.
