      9 Suspected of Attempted Extortion at Sha'ar Binyamin

      Nine people were arrested, Thursday, on suspicion of trying to extort money from the owners of stores in the Sha'ar Binyamin complex on Highway 60, just north of Jerusalem.

      The Shomron-Yehudah (Samaria-Judea) police said that because of the lack of cooperation by the merchants, overt and covert operations were carried out that led to the arrests. The suspects were given restraining orders to keep them away from the complex for periods ranging from 90-180 days and were forced to deposit a bond.
