Police say second suspect arrested in death of Christian Arab teen

Police say they have arrested a second suspect in the suspected murder of 16-year-old Yara Ayoub, from the Christian Arab village of Jish in the Upper Galilee, who has been missing since last week.

Ayoub’s body was found earlier today near the village.

A 28-year-old suspect, also from Jish, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of kidnapping and obstructing the investigation.

Police now say a second suspect, age 53, is under arrest for “involvement” in Ayoub’s death, though the exact charges being leveled against him are not yet clear. He will be brought to the Nazareth Magistrate’s Court for a remand hearing tomorrow morning.
