Israel arrests youths over arson attack on Palestinian home

Israeli authorities have arrested several youths in connection with an arson attack that killed a Palestinian toddler and his parents.

The Shin Bet internal security service said it had arrested a number of youths believed to belong to a Jewish terrorist organisation.

In July, a firebomb was thrown into the Dawabsheh family's home in the West Bank village of Duma , where four family members were asleep.

Ali Dawabsheh, a toddler, died, while his mother and father later died of their wounds. His four-year-old brother Ahmad is being treated in an Israeli hospital.
