Three Palestinian teens were under arrest Thursday for allegedly raping and robbing a 60-year old UNIFIL worker in her east Jerusalem home, police said. The three suspects, including two minors, were arrested after the woman, who is from a Scandinavian country, filed a complaint with police, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. A fourth suspect remains at large. The four Palestinians, who are residents of the West Bank and are not connected with the UN institution, are alleged to have carried out the December 4 attack and robbery at the woman's Beit Hanina home. The two minors were remanded in custody by a Jerusalem court on Thursday for seven days, while the third suspect has been ordered held for eight days, police said. The police plan to press charges against the suspects when they complete their investigation.
