    Five Palestinians suspected of involvement in the 25 February suicide attack in Tel Aviv are under interrogation by the Palestinian security forces. The five suspects were arrested at the home of the suicide bomber in Tulkarem and are being held in Jericho. Palestinian leader Mahoud Abbas is under a great deal of pressure from Israel and the United States to arrest all those who are behind the attack, which killed 5 Israeli citizens. In his statement yesterday, Abbas stated that it is difficult to stop suicide attacks if Israel does not surrender the control of large cities in the West Bank to the Palestinians. On Saturday in Hebron, the Palestinian police confiscated bombs and other weapons, for the first time in the last four years.
