Three Arab rioters who hurled stones in Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday evening were taken in for questioning. In total, 21 rioters were arrested in Sunday's capital violence on suspicion of disorderly conduct and attacking police officers. Among them were Ali Abu Sheikha, the third-most senior ranking official from the Islamic Movement's northern branch, and senior Fatah official Hatem Abdel Kader, who was arrested on charges of attacking an officer and inciting the violence.
