Subsequently, the police arrested two members of staff and put a third under house arrest as investigations continued.

Haaretz reports that one of the girls who died on the ill-fated trip messaged friends the night before to share her misgivings.

The staffers - a principal and teacher - at Bnei Zion, a Tel Aviv-based pre-military academy, were remanded in custody until Tuesday over their alleged disregard of flood warnings. The remaining 15 students from the group were rescued, and two of them were treated for hypothermia, according to the Times.

Meek Mill Speaks Out Since Prison Release: "I Don't Feel Free"
Although Meek Mill is home from prison, he's not exactly "free" just yet. "I've got a lot of important people depending on me". Meek Mill , whose real name Robert Rihmeek Williams , had been in jail for five months after his latest probation violation.

The teens were among a group of about 23 boys and girls from a pre-army preparatory course, who went hiking in the Tzafit wadi when a flooding began.

A small section of Israel's concrete separation wall in East Jerusalem that was built to seal off Palestinian areas collapsed due to the heavy rainfall but construction teams were on site to seal the breach, police said.

As the dead students were named today, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said that the entire state "grieves for the promising young lives that were cut off by the grave disaster in the Arava". We are closely following the updates from the south and send a warm embrace to the anxious families. Separately, Algeria announced six people lost their lives in the last 48 hours. We're following the situation in the south closely and are sending a warm embrace to the effected families. "We will keep going until we find them all", she said earlier, when several of the students were being treated as missing. The main question being asked was why the group had made a decision to continue with the hike in an area known for flash floods.
