A 15-year-old Jerusalem teen was under arrest for planning to distribute incendiary flyers against the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, police said Sunday. The Jewish suspect, who was apprehended Saturday night in his city home, has refused to cooperate with police investigators, asserting that police were conducting a "political investigation" Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. During a search of his home, police confiscated the suspect's laptop, which they were looking through. The teen, who cannot be named because he is a minor, was remanded in custody for two days Sunday by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court on charges of incitement to violence and defamation. Concomitantly, police also raided the West Bank home of a second far-right activist suspected of planning to distribute flyers of the late Premier dressed in an SS uniform. The suspect was not home at the time of the search and police were trying to locate him. The arrest and raid came as Israel marked a decade since the assassination of the late prime minister.
