TULKARM, April 24, (AFP): Israel freed 12-year-old Palestinian Dima al-Wawi from prison on Sunday, more than two months after jailing her for an attempted stabbing attack. Wawi was handed over to Palestinian authorities at Tulkarem crossing point into the northern West Bank, an AFP photographer said. She was to travel from there to her family home near Hebron in the south of the territory. She was arrested, wearing her school uniform, on Feb 9 at the entrance to a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank and found to be carrying a knife.
