      Gilo Gas Technician to be Released Tuesday Evening

      The Jerusalem District Court ordered, Tuesday, that the technician arrested after Monday's fatal explosion of a gas balloon in Jerusalem's Gilo neighborhood be released, Tuesday evening. The ruling came in an appeal of the two days of remand ordered for the technician on Monday.
