Remand Extended a Day for Suspect in Attacks on Arabs

The Jerusalem Magistrates Court extended by a day, Thursday, the remand of a Jewish youth arrested, Wednesday evening, in connection with spraying teargas at Arab taxi drivers, according to the Honenu legal-aid organization, which is defending him.

The police requested a ten-day extension but Judge Mordechai Burstein claimed their identification of the youthful suspect was problematic. The police plan to appeal the decision.
