Israel arrested several suspects Sunday in raids linked to the deadly firebombing of a Palestinian home and placed two more alleged Jewish extremists in a controversial form of detention without trial, officials said.The authorities' moves came as calls mounted for a crackdown on Jewish extremism in the wake of the July 31 arson attack in the West Bank village of Duma that killed an 18-month-old child and his father.While the attacks were not related, both have led to criticism of Israel's government and security forces, who have been accused of failing to properly address Jewish extremism.Separately, the defense ministry said two more alleged Jewish extremists were placed in what is known as administrative detention, which allows suspects to be held without charge for six-month intervals that can be renewed indefinitely.A third alleged extremist was put in administrative detention several days ago.
