Three Detained in Old City


Two girls were detained, Thursday evening, on suspicion of spray painting grafitti after the traditional torchlight march around the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem by Land of Israel activists to mark the beginning of the new Jewish month of Cheshvan. The girls received guidance from the Honenu legal-aid organization before they were questioned by police. After the interrogation, the girls were released, on condition of not returning to the Old City for 15 days.

Police also detained a boy in the Western Wall Plaza who was in the possession of stickers that police said posed legal problems.
