A 13-year-old girl, with violent bruises on her body, was found Wednesday evening dead in a school's bathroom in the northern city of Katzrin.
The police suspect the girl was murdered, and say they are checking all leads, especially an option that the murder was an outcome of teenage violence.
The police have been searching for the girl since early Wednesday afternoon, after her parents reported her missing. Her body was found in one of the bathroom stalls. Magen David Adom paramedics who arrived to the location pronounced her dead.
