JERUSALEM -- Several young Israelis with possible ties to an “organized Jewish terror group” have been detained as suspects in the July arson attack against a Palestinian family in the West Bank that killed a toddler and his parents, Israeli police said Thursday.

State security agents said the youths have “concrete links” to the firebombing of the Dawabsha family in the village of Duma, an attack that stunned Jewish Israelis, angered Palestinians and focused renewed attention on the specter of what the Israeli military branded “Jewish terrorism.”
