Police arrested a 23-year-old female resident of Tel Aviv Monday night on suspicion of acting as an accomplice to an attack last week on homes of Eritrean and Sudanese asylum seekers in the southern part of the coastal city. She, as well as her 20-year-old brother, who was arrested Sunday, are accused of involvement in the throwing of Molotov cocktails in the Shapira neighborhood.

According to witnesses, around 1:30 a.m. Friday morning Molotov cocktails hit three residences, a preschool and a park in an area of southern Tel Aviv heavily populated with African refugees. Some of the properties were damaged, but there were no injuries.
