More Palestinian Child Abuse

"A 10-year-old was arrested with explosive material at a checkpoint near Nablus," an Israeli military source told AFP on Monday, adding that he was in possession of around 10 kilos (22 lbs.) of explosives.

"He was taken into custody for investigation. The explosives were detonated in a controlled manner."
Next thing you know, the Arabs will be accusing Israel of kidnapping the boy.

Child promised large sum to carry bomb loaded with screws and nails, which was rigged to blow up child and roadblock.
