    Nazareth church attacked

    From Haaretz:

    Towards evening, Havivi, his Christian wife Violet and their daugther hid firecrackers and small gas canisters in a baby stroller and detonated the firecrackers inside the church during a special prayer for the opening of Lent.

    Havivi and the two women entered the basilica compound disguised as Christian pilgrims. Police had questioned Havivi in the past after he threatened to attack churches in Israel.

    Jerusalem welfare services are also familiar with the couple, after their children were taken away from them.

    Channel 10 TV News reported the Shin Bet domestic security service said Havivi is known to have a history of mental illness. Havivi had attempted to attack churches in the past, notably the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
