Venezuelan investigators this past weekend said seven police agents and four civilians were arrested in connection with an attack on a synagogue that sparked international condemnation. The Venezuelan public prosecutor's office said the civilians included at least one security official from the synagogue and that all had been captured in raids over the weekend. Armed men broke into Venezuela's Tiferet synagogue this month, daubing the walls with slogans like "Jews get out" and destroyed religious objects. (Reuters)
