WASHINGTON - US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Thursday the arrest in Israel of a suspect in bomb threats made to American Jewish centers reflected the government's determination not to tolerate hate crimes.

"The Department of Justice is committed to protecting the civil rights of all Americans, and we will not tolerate the targeting of any community in this country on the basis of their religious beliefs," Sessions said in a statement. "I commend the FBI and Israeli National Police for their outstanding work on this case.”
