Israeli tourist's case to be decided

An Indian court was expected to rule on Tuesday whether Noa Haviv, the Israeli tourist who was arrested three weeks ago after customs officials at the Mumbai airport found an ammunition clip in her backpack, will receive her passport back and be allowed to return to Israel.
Haviv's father, Moshe, told Army Radio that the family was hopeful. "We hope for a decision within 24 hours, maybe even on the spot," he said.
Haviv was arrested on September 20 and spent nearly a week in jail before being released on bail. Indian officials confiscated her passport, and Haviv was allowed to continue her travels in the country, but not return to Israel.
