A Jerusalem court has extended the arrest of a 19-year-old Arab man suspected of stabbing two Jewish teens in the Old City on Saturday night. 

The arrest has been extended by eight days until May 31, police said in a statement on Sunday.

Two 17-year-olds en route to the Western Wall for an all-night Torah study were stabbed in the back by a man believed to be a resident of the Old City. He was arrested in his home after being identified on a security camera.
