News the HP Doesn't Follow Up On: Beiter Arrests

The Huffington Post couldn't wait to cover the news of the offices of football club Beitar Jerusalem being torched by vandals, but it doesn't seem interested in what the consequences were for the vandals:
"Two men were arrested on Tuesday morning in connection with the arson that took place earlier this month at the offices of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club.
Both suspects are members of Beitar Jerusalem’s hardcore fanclub La Familia, and their apprehension brings the total number of arrests in the case to nine. A police spokesman said the seven suspects taken into custody last week were thought to be accomplices, while the two arrested on Tuesday were suspected of actually setting the blaze.
One of the two men arrested on Tuesday confessed to his role in the arson. He reenacted the incident for police and implicated the second suspect, who was arrested later in the morning. Both men, who are in their 20s, were in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday afternoon for a remand hearing."
