      Cancer Cases Clear Classrooms in Petach Tikva School

      Students in a Petach Tikva school have been removed from classrooms next to electrical cabinets following tests indicating abnormal levels of radiation, according to a Thursday evening report by Channel 2 Television. The principal ordered the radiation testing after two students were diagnosed with cancer and a third student was recovering from cancer, although there no immediate link was found between the radiation and the illness.

      The Petach Tikva municipality said it would deal urgently with the radiation, promising to install proper protection against excess radiation next week.
