Four Betar Jerusalem soccer fans were arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting fans of a competing team earlier this month, police said. Following "intelligence information," the teenage suspects - including three minors - were apprehended for the attack on Kfar Saba fans outside Jerusalem's Teddy Stadium, which included the stoning of a bus with Kfar Saba fans on board, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The minors were remanded in custody by a Jerusalem court Monday for three days, while the fourth suspect was placed under house arrest. Police said more arrests were expected in the case.
