  • Culture Minister addresses film awards controversy
  • Salmonella discovered in Unilever cereal, again
  • Court remands suspect in posting sportscaster's intimate photos

Culture Minister Miri Regev addressed the controversy of last night's Israeli film awards ceremony, during which she exited the hall when a poem by the Palestinian national poet, Mahmoud Darwish, was performed on stage. "A group of bully artists allowed themselves to behave in a disgraceful way," Regev said, and added that her ministry would set up a committee to look into the funding criteria in the film industry. During Regev's speech at the ceremony, in which she called the artists "hypocrites," several audience members shouted in protest. When the film Sand Storm, which depicts the life of a Bedouin family, won the Best Picture award, its Arab creators refused to accept it on stage.


Unilever Israel announced on Friday that a lab examination revealed traces of Salmonella in one of its cereal brands. The company said it had notified the Health Ministry of the findings, and stressed that none of the contaminated products reached the supermarket shelves.

A Beersheba court ordered to keep a 26-year-old man in police custody for five days over suspicion that he stole sportscaster Sharon Perry's mobile phone. The suspect allegedly stole the phone while Perry was at the beach. His friends then posted on social media Perry's intimate photos, which were on her device.
