60-Year-Old Pours Flammable Liquid on Himself

A 60-year-old man was detained for questioning, Monday morning, after he doused himself with a flammable liquid in an income-tax office in the Giv'at Shaul neighborhood of Jerusalem. Security personnel overpowered him after he threatened to set himself on fire.

The man said he only meant to threaten and not actually set himself on fire.
