Tel Aviv Police arrested five teenagers aged 14 to 17 for publishing on the social networking Website 'Facebook' an obituary for Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Hulda'i, who is alive. They also established a group on the site calling to kill him, Army Radio reported Wednesday. The boys confessed to the crime during their interrogation and said they did it because of the closing down of the Ussihskin Arena, where Hapoel Tel Aviv, their favored basketball team, plays.
