Two Arab boys, both aged thirteen, are under arrest today in connection with the fire which destroyed a number of young trees in the Balfour Forest planted by the Jewish National Fund. Police modified their earlier estimates of the damage caused by the blaze and said that 3,000 trees had been destroyed.
