Update: Two Minors Arrested for Arson

Two boys, ages 13 and 14, were detained Sunday by Jerusalem police on suspicion of involvement in a wave of Sunday fires in the capital. Fires broke out in seven places around the city, including the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood.

The boys were arrested after a local resident saw them fleeing from one of the hot spots and called police. Police noted that the investigation is in its preliminary stages and it is not clear if the youths were, in fact, involved.
