Israel arrests 2 Muslim clerics on terror charges

Israeli police say they have arrested two Muslim clerics on unspecified "terror-related" charges.



Jerusalem: Israeli police say they have
arrested two Muslim clerics on unspecified "terror-related"
charges.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld today said that the two were
being held on suspicion of supporting unidentified "terror
organisations".

Rosenfeld wouldn`t elaborate because there is a
partial gag order on the case. But Israeli media reported that
the clerics were trying to encourage worshipers at the main
mosque in the northern Israeli city of Nazareth to join
al Qaeda.

Several Arab citizens of Israel have been arrested
this year and accused of spying for anti-Israeli militant
groups, including the Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah.

Some have been released on lesser charges.
