Firebombing at Jewel of Medina publishers

Three or four men have been arrested for the unsuccessful firebombing of The Jewel of Medina’s British publisher’s office.

Martin Rynja’s home in Islington, which also serves as the offices of his publishing company Gibson Square, was attacked in the early hours of Saturday morning. It is suspected that a petrol bomb was pushed through the letterbox.

Nobody was hurt, and arrests have been made. Two of those arrests were made outside the house itself. Did the idiots hang around to watch the fire?

UPDATE: The Times report suggests that the police anticipated the attack, which would explain why the arrests were made so quickly.

    - Not that uncommon, actually. Firebugs love to watch the devastation they are causing.
