An Israeli funeral procession was pelted with stones Wednesday by Arab teens on Jerusalem's Mount of Olives, police said. There were no casualties reported in the afternoon attack, but some vehicles were damaged in the incident, an Israeli eyewitness said. An Arab teenager suspected of taking part in the stoning was arrested at the scene, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The Mount of Olives, which abuts Arab neighborhoods of east Jerusalem, houses the most ancient Jewish cemetery in the world.
