Rape sentence for Arab posing as a Jew

The Israeli papers are covering the 18-month prison sentence handed down to an Arab man from East Jerusalem who allegedly posed as a Jew and then slept with a woman who later pressed charges. He has been convicted of “rape by deception”. Other stories we looked at in today’s international papers: an oil-eating bacteria for oil spills, a whale who jumped on top of a boat in South Africa and the Nigerian couple in the UK who had a white baby.
