Police arrested two youths from Lod on Tuesday night for directing a laser beam at a police helicopter which was in operation in the area. The pilot reported being blinded by laser flashes, and the police air crew directed a Border Police ground unit to the location of the youths. The teenagers said during questioning that they did not know they were blinding the pilot. They two were released under conditions of house arrest.
