Police on Wednesday released more details following the arrest of four Jewish 16- and 17-year-old boys suspected of stabbing to death 24-year-old Husam Rawidi from the Kfar Akeb village in northeast Jerusalem two weeks ago.

Two of the boys are residents of the settlements and another two are from Jerusalem.

Only one of boys is suspected of stabbing Rawidi, in a confrontation that broke out between Arabs and Jews in downtown Jerusalem at a popular hangout area known as Kikar Hatulot [Cat Square] at the end of Hillel Street.
