93 Arab residents of east Jerusalem have been arrested for rioting in the city since the start of the Israeli offensive operation against Hamas in Gaza, police said Tuesday. The four-day old protests appeared to be ebbing on Tuesday, with only one peaceful demonstration reported in east Jerusalem by late-afternoon. The suspects detained for alleging participating in the violent protests - during which both stones and firebombs were hurled at police - included both minors and adults, the police said. About two dozen police officers were lightly wounded in the clashes.
