Man with pipe bombs, assault weapon arrested in Tel Aviv:


Israeli authoritie­s say they “prevented a disaster” by arresting a Palestinia­n in Tel Aviv who was armed with an assault weapon and two pipe bombs. The arrest in the Jaffa area came as Israelis were flocking to the city’s bars and restaurant­s at the start of the weekend. In April, a Palestinia­n gunman opened fire at a crowded bar in the city, killing three people and wounding another six. That assailant eluded a massive police manhunt for hours before he was killed in a shootout.
