Israeli police have arrested five Jewish teenagers suspected of attacking a Palestinian man in Jerusalem.

The police say Ibrahim Abu Taa was assaulted in a Jewish area of the city when he was returning from work and one of his legs was broken.

The assault is the latest in a series of attacks on Palestinians by Jewish youths in Israel which have been condemned by political leaders.
