Police Arrest Hamas Activist at J'lem Red Cross Office


Jerusalem police arrested Hamas activist Muhammad Aton, Monday, at the entrance to the offices of the Red Cross in eastern Jerusalem. Aton spent the past year in the office for fear of deportation after the Interior Ministry revoked his identity card over his Hamas activities, which are illegal in Jerusalem.

Aton was taken to the minorities division of the Jerusalem-district police for questioning.
