Four children were arrested and will be charged with assault after being accused of being behind a string of “Knockout Game” attacks, according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said that they have arrested the four children on Thursday, in Crown Heights.

A 14-year-old girl and three other children, aged between 10 and 11, were arrested for being connected to three assaults that occurred between October and November.

Among the victims was an 11-year-old boy, who was punched by the suspects in the street, a young man who was hit with a stone while walking home from school and a young man who was slammed in the face with a plastic bag.

Police determined that the attacks were not motivated by anti-Semitism.

"The only similarity in all attacks was that all the victims were Jews," a police spokesperson said.

The names of the minors who were arrested, were not released because of their young age. All suspects will be charged in family court.

(Scroll down for video) Next time you run to your closet only to be disappointed to see that it is empty, remember that you can turn to your printer for help.

An Israeli couple produced revolutionary technology that lets you print a new pair of panties with a 3D printer.

Tami and Udi Gilo have developed a fabric that can be fed into a printer, and are in talks with lingerie suppliers like retailer Victoria's Secret over a possible marketing agreement.

The couple moved to Manchester, United Kingdom, from Israel, to develop the technology through their company Tamicare. The couple claims to be able to print a pair of panties in three seconds, and could produce 10 million pairs a year.

They already have 40 patents on the process that could transform the way the clothes are made.

The fabric has more uses than just underwear, Mrs. Gilo said.

"Today I know that there are many different areas where our product could be used," she said.

“Our product could provide wound care in the medical industry, and in sports. We have been contacted by the automotive industry for automotive acoustic components. With this technology, one day you could be able to print your clothing," Gilo also said.

A young Israeli diamond dealer hit the jackpot by finding a bag filled with diamonds.

The Bnei Brak jeweler found a bag of diamonds worth $200,000 and returned it to its owner.

The bag of diamonds was found in the Diamond Exchange, which is located in Ramat Gan, on Thursday.

A veteran jeweler had lost the bag in the diamond exchange.

"It was not our diamonds and we did not have insurance," the son of the veteran diamond dealer said.

The man who found the bag, said that the clear bag was on the floor, and he immediately picked it up and saw that it contained diamonds.

He took the diamonds to the legal department of the exchange in order to appraise it to find out its value.

"I did not even think about keeping it. I was taught not to take anything that is not mine," the finder of the diamonds said.

"I never thought I would get the diamonds back," the man who lost the diamonds said. "The person who returned it is a righteous man. I do not think that there are too many people like him. I'm pleasantly surprised," he said.

A senior hi-tech executive was arrested, charged and convicted with child sexual assault after getting 30 little kids to perform sexual acts on themselves while he watched, according to court proceedings in Israel.

Now, the man has been sentenced to ten years in prison after being convicted of numerous counts of sex crimes with minors in a plea bargain agreement.

The 42-year-old from the Sharon region, was sentenced on Wednesday, after being convicted of committing sexual offenses with more than 33 boys and girls.

During sentencing, the judges of the Lod District Court said that this was the worst case of child sexual assault they ever saw.

In 2012, the man was arrested for committing sex crimes with children between the ages of 10 and 13, through the Internet. The man was also ordered to pay 10,000 shekels ($2,800) to each of the 33 victims.

He hunted his victims on social networking sites. He would engage in conversation, and then persuade them to perform sexual acts on themselves.

In one case, the defendant persuaded a 13-year-old boy to perform an indecent act and sodomize his sister, 11.

Hospital ordered to pay $50 million after taking away woman’s choice to abort her baby

Rhea Wuth with son Oliver

A couple won a lawsuit, and were awarded money so that they can care for their son for the rest of his life.

While it's not uncommon for hospitals and doctors to be found legally liable for "wrongful death," this time a hospital was ordered to pay for a "wrongful birth."

Brock and Rhea Wuth of Washington, discovered their family was a carrier of a rare genetic disease that could be passed on to their children.

Therefore, when his wife Rhea became pregnant, the couple went for testing to see if their unborn baby carried the gene.

The couple went to the Valley Medical Center’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine Clinic, to get the genetic test done. The hospital subcontracted the test to Dynacare Laboratories, a subsidiary of LabCorps.

The test came back and showed that the child did not carry the rare disease and that he will be a healthy child.

However, that was not the case, the baby was born with “unbalanced chromosomal translocation,” a profound mental and physical disability.

The problem was that to successfully screen for chromosomal abnormality, the lab needed more specific information from the hospital, but the hospital failed to provide it.

However, nobody at the lab informed the family that the specific information was missing, before giving them the results.

Rhea and Brock Wuth sued the hospital and LabCorp. A jury awarded them $50 million for the "wrongful birth."

Had the couple known of the genetic defect, they would have ended the pregnancy, according to court records.

The award will go to the parents so that they can care for their disabled son Oliver, who will require care for the rest of his life.

The money is to be paid equally by Valley Medical Center in Renton, Washington, and Laboratory Corporation of America (LabCorp), which is based in North Carolina.
