Five haredim, one of them a minor, were arrested on Saturday night on suspicion of uproot and hurling a memorial plaque dedicated to the victims of a suicide bombing on Jaffa street in Jerusalem.

The plaque commemorated those killed in a suicide bombing on Egged bus number 18 during the Second Intifada.

Police said four of the offenders were arrested on the spot, while the fifth was apprehended following a short chase. The five were transferred for questioning, but were not cooperating with their investigators.
