    The second man found guilty of the gruesome murder of five members of the same Israeli family has been given five life sentences plus an additional seven years.

    Amjad Awad was given the same 130-year sentence as his cousin Hakim, after the pair were found to be behind the massacre at the home of the Fogel family ten months ago.

    They were convicted of killing Udi and Ruth Fogel and three of their five children, the youngest of whom was just four months old.

    The bodies were found at their home in the Itamar settlement by Tamar Fogel, the eldest child , who was then 14.

    During the investigation, a Shin Bet official said: "In the questioning, they said that their motive was simply to kill Jews and Israelis and to steal weapons to carry out further attacks."
