Tunisian authorities arrested five suspects for last week’s firebombing of the historic Ghriba Synagogue on the island of Djerba.

According to Tunisian news reports, four men, ages 19-20, were arrested last Friday by national security units. The suspects, who are not known to belong to any extremist groups, confessed to making four Molotov cocktails that they threw at the synagogue as part of general unrest that has gripped the country in recent weeks. A fifth suspect was arrested last Saturday night.
