Is­rael ar­rests hacker linked to threats on U.S. Jewish cen­ters

The Denver Post - - NATION & WORLD -

B jerusalem» Is­raeli po­lice on Thurs­day ar­rested a 19-year-old hacker who they said was the main sus­pect in a wave of bomb threats against Jewish com­mu­nity cen­ters in the U.S., ap­pear­ing to crack a case that has sent a chill through the Amer­i­can Jewish com­mu­nity. The sur­pris­ing ar­rest of the Jewish man, who holds dual Is­raeli and Amer­i­can cit­i­zen­ship, came af­ter a tran­sAt­lantic in­ves­ti­ga­tion with the FBI and other in­ter­na­tional law en­force­ment agen­cies. U.S. Jewish groups wel­comed the break­through in the case, which had raised con­cerns of ris­ing anti-Semitism and drawn con­dem­na­tion from Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.
