Police arrest 22 Palestinians in East Jerusalem

Police said on Tuesday they arrested 22 Palestinians in East Jerusalem overnight on suspicion of throwing stones and Molotov cocktails, as three months of protests showed no let-up.


It brought to 700 the number of arrests in East Jerusalem since July, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement, including 50 this month alone.


Among those arrested were 13 minors, who police said were suspected of having thrown Molotov cocktails at Jewish homes or at security forces in the past week.
