Suspects in Kafr Qasim assault on police officers remanded for 5 days

Three suspects in the beating of police officers in the Arab Israeli city of Kafr Qasim have been remanded until Thursday, police say.

Police arrested the three suspects over the weekend after several officers were assaulted early Friday by private security guards working for the municipality. Police suspect a fourth man, who hasn’t been arrested, was also involved in the attack.

The officers had sought to enter the town’s municipality after receiving a report that someone had been violently taken into the building, but were denied entry by the guards. A scuffle broke out and several cops were beaten and bloodied.
