Arabs Nabbed Trying to Start Fires

A 34 year old Nazareth resident was arrested late Saturday for trying to start a fire in a forest near the town. He was being questioned by police, who intend to press charges against him.

Also on Saturday night, border police nabbed several PA Arabs who were trying to start a fire in a wadi next to the Gilo neighborhood of Jerusalem. The two were arrested thanks to reports by observant drivers who saw the Arabs acting suspiciously. The Arabs are being questioned by security officials.
