Remand of Second Tuba Arson Suspect Extended Two Days

The Petach Tikva Magistrates Court extended by two days, Monday, the remand of the second suspect arrested in the torching of a mosque in the Upper Galilee village of Tuba Zangariya, last week. Police has sought a week's extension.

Attorney Adi Kedar of the Honenu legal-aid organization, who had appealed the suspect's arrest, said a number of things point to there being no reason for the man to have been arrested.
