Jerusalem police have detained a man on suspicion of sending a letter threatening that "a judge will be executed by lethal weapon," to the Courts Administration.

The suspect, about 50, from central Israel, was arrested Friday morning. He has admitted to the charges, and was expected to be brought for a remand-extension hearing at 1 p.m.

Also Friday, the remand of David Dahan, suspected of slashing the tires of Judge Anna Schneider's car, was extended until next Wednesday.

"A threat or attack against the body or property of a judge is a severe blow to democracy," the ruling said.
