An American tourist from Los Angeles was arrested after he splattered red paint on the Western Wall. Police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said the unidentified man “came to Israel two weeks ago and then decided that he didn’t like Israeli policies.” In the hours after the attack, workers tried to clean off the paint while Jewish worshipers continued to pray nearby.
