Grandson of ultra-nationalist Kahane arrested for involvement in extremist Jewish underground

The Shin Bet intelligence agency arrested far right figure Meir Etinger on Monday. Etinger, who has a banning order keeping him away from the West Bank and Jerusalem, is a resident of Safed, and was arrested by the Shin Bet, together with the Judea and Samaria Central police unit.

The arrest came as the government approved harsher measures against Jewish extremists following a firebomb attack that killed a Palestinian baby in the West Bank village of Duma on Friday.

The Shin Bet said Etinger is in custody "due to his involvement and activities in extremist Jewish organizations."
