An 18-year-old Arab was arrested on Friday after trying to stab a police officer in Jerusalem's Old City. The man arrived at the entrance to the Mughrabi bridge which leads to the Temple Mount, and when officers came to check him, he brandished the blade, shouted Alluhu Akhbar (God is the greatest) and tried to stab one of them. Police overpowered him and he was taken for questioning. No one was wounded.
