A Jerusalem yeshiva student was arrested after trying to block Ariel Sharon’s motorcade. The suspect threw himself in front of a security vehicle accompanying the Israeli prime minister’s car in Jerusalem on Monday, witnesses said. The motorcade circumvented him while a police car gave chase. Under interrogation, the suspect said he merely heckled Sharon.
