Police have arrested a number of suspects for alleged involvement in the Saturday arson attack on a school which serves both Arabs and Jewish pupils in Jerusalem, it was revealed Sunday after a gag order was lifted.

The Max Rayne Hand in Hand School, one of only a handful of bilingual schools in the country, went up in flames in the capital’s Pat neighborhood on Saturday.

The Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court extended the remand of four of the suspects until Thursday.

Police had requested that their remands be extended for eight days.
