Man arrested outside Sharon's home11/08/2003 - 17:33:15
A 22-year-old Jewish settler was arrested near Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s Jerusalem home after threatening to kill him.
Security around the Israeli premier was stepped up in May after threats from right wing Jews to punish him for backing the US road map peace plan.
Asked what he was doing outside the home, the man said: “The prime minister killed my friend and my neighbour. It’s no problem at all for me to kill him.”
He fled but was apprehended after a brief chase. He was later released without charge after he promised to stay away from Jerusalem for 15 days.
