Arab youths arrested for throwing rocks at Jerusalem train

Police arrest a number of Arab youths who they say threw rocks at light rail trains in East Jerusalem’s Shuafat and Beit Hanina neighborhoods.

In all, six youths aged 14-15 have been arrested, all of them residents of Shuafat, Israel Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says.

They all confessed to hurling rocks and bottles of paint at the train, she says.

The suspects all go to the same school, she says, and in the afternoon they would get together and attack the trains.

The suspects have been remanded at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.
