Four additional members of the Lehava Jewish extremist group were arrested on Sunday morning in connection to the arson attack at Jerusalem's Jewish-Arab Max Rayne Hand in Hand School last month.

Four other members were taken in for questioning.

The Shin Bet had previously conducted a round of arrests. They said that the suspects from the Lehava group, who range in age from 18-22, confessed to the attack against the Hebrew-Arabic school, but attorneys say confession coerced.
