Three Arabs were arrested by the Jerusalem police this morning and were held as suspects in connection with an explosion in the neighborhood of the Western Wall known as the Wailing Wall.

The explosion occurred in a building opposite the Wailing Wall. The house was almost entirely destroyed. Under the ruins of the house, which was unoccupied, a quantity of unexploded dynamite was found.

The Wall suffered no damage from the explosion.
