7 Druse in custody after Ussfiya riots over gas pipeline

Four Druse youngsters arrested during riots in the northern village of Ussfiya were due to be brought for a remand-extension hearing on Monday.
Four police officers were wounded and 18 people were arrested during Sunday night's disturbances over the government's decision to lay a gas pipeline on Druse land before a compensation agreement has been reached.
The remands of three of the detainees were extended on Sunday night, while the remaining 11 were released to house arrest.
