About NIMROD KAMER and OHAD ShEM-TOV Hebrew University humanities students, held for anti-Semitic Yom Kippur graffiti

2 held for Yom Kippur graffiti

Jerusalem police on Tuesday arrested two Jewish humanities students from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem who are suspected of scrawling anti-government graffiti on a city intersection on Yom Kippur, police said.

Both men, Nimrod Kamer and Ohad Shem-Tov, in their early 20s, have confessed to the vandalism, Jerusalem Police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said.

Acting on intelligence information, police arrested Kamer on Tuesday afternoon.

During a search of his home, police discovered paint, a paint brush, and jeans covered with white paint.

Kamer then confessed to the vandalism, and reported the second suspect, Shem-Tov, who, accompanied by a lawyer, turned himself in to police Tuesday evening.

It was not immediately clear whether the two were also responsible for the anti-Israel and anti-Sharon graffiti scrawled on the Great Synagogue, but during their interrogation both far-left suspects told police that they vandalized property in various Israeli cities "for ideological reasons."

The suspects were to be brought to a Jerusalem court for a remand hearing late Tuesday.
