Israel extends detention of suspected al-Qaida men
An Israeli court has extended by two days the detention of two Palestinian men it suspects of planning to bomb the US Embassy in Tel Aviv under instructions from al-Qaeda.


Israel accuses Eyad Abu Sara and Rubin Abu Nagma of planning a suicide bombing at the embassy and a major convention center in Jerusalem. It says they received their instructions over the Internet through a handler in the Gaza Strip who had direct ties to al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri. A third suspect was arrested last week but did not appear in court Sunday with the two others. (AP)
