Tel Aviv Police Arrest Suspects in 2009 Gay Slayings

Thursday, 06 Jun 2013 07:38 AM

TEL AVIV, Israel — Israel police on Wednesday arrested three suspects in a deadly 2009 shooting attack on a gay youth center in Tel Aviv, a police spokesman said.

"Three arrests were made and the suspects will appear before Tel Aviv magistrates court tomorrow," Micky Rosenfeld told AFP. "They are suspected of being connected to the murders that took place in 2009."

A teen-aged girl and a man in his 20s were killed and 15 people wounded when a masked, black-clad gunman opened fire on a group of young gays and lesbians at the entrance to the center on August 1, 2009.

The arrests were announced as Tel Aviv, the gay capital of the Middle East, prepares for its annual Gay Pride parade on Friday.

Publicly-owned Channel One TV said that the suspects were Jews, ending speculation that the attackers could have been Palestinian militants.
