      Diskin Warned of Copycat Attacks 3 Hours Before Attack


      Yuval Diskin, chief of the Shin Bet (Israel's General Security Service), warned of the likelihood of another bulldozer attack just three hours before Tuesday afternoon's terror attack.

      Diskin said in a  meeting Tuesday morning that a repeat of the July 2 attack could be in the works, since another Jerusalem Arab might try to imitate the earlier terrorist act, which claimed the lives of three people.

      Meanwhile the Jerusalem Municipality has asked the city's Magistrate Court to expedite the demolition of the home of the family of Tuesday's attacker.
