Seventy-five Arabs were arrested in the latest upswing in violence in Jerusalem, 24 of them minors, police said on Wednesday. Security investigations are being conducted, and further arrests are expected, police added. The detainees are suspected of throwing rocks, hurling Molotov cocktails, assaulting policemen, conducting illegal demonstrations and other offenses. The recent riots began on Sunday morning when some 150 Muslims threw rocks and bottles at police after being denied entry to the Temple Mount compound for morning prayers at the Aksa Mosque.
