A 19-year-old Arab teen wearing an Islamic Jihad shirt was arrested by police Sunday in east Jerusalem's Shuafat Refugee Camp, police said. The suspect, who was also carrying a Koran, told police in his initial interrogation that he came "to attack Jews," Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. No weapons or explosives were found in his possession. The man was taken into custody for further questioning. The Islamic Jihad has carried out all six suicide bombings in Israeli cities since an informal truce went into effect last year.
