Police arrested Hamas activist Muhammad Atun Monday morning outside the Red Cross building in east Jerusalem Monday. He was brought by investigators from the Police's Minorities Division for investigation.

Atun had his identity card revoked by the Interior Ministry last year for being involved in Hamas activities in Jerusalem. Since that time, police say he was holed up in the Red Cross building out of fear that he would be deported.
