Indian police arrested more than 100 Muslims protesting Ariel Sharon’s visit there. The arrests, which came in Bombay during one of many rallies against the Israeli prime minister’s visit, fueled fears of a possible terror attack. On Tuesday, Sharon was welcomed with a ceremony at the presidential palace in New Delhi. Meanwhile, India’s prime minister vowed that Israeli-Indian ties will be strengthened in the coming years.
