Two Palestinian children were arrested on Sunday after the military and police forces raided their homes in Qalqilya. In violation of the law, the children were interrogated for hours without an adult present and without an attorney on the suspicion of having helped steal three bicycles and two helmets. The boys were released the next morning by a judge, who sharply criticized police conduct. (Hebrew)
