The Jewish Telegraphic Agency website reports today (October 7, 2011) that an 18-year-old Jewish man from northern Israel was arrested by Israeli police on suspicion of being behind the burning of a mosque in Tuba Zanghariya on October 2.

The suspect's lawyer said the man denies being involved in the arson.

The suspect had studied in a West Bank yeshiva and had been banned from an area in the West Bank.

At a hearing in Kfar Saba yesterday, a judge extended the custody of him for five days.
