Israeli police have arrested a 19-year-old teenager on charges of hacking into a police computer system in Pennsylvania.

The youth, from the city of Beersheba, has not been named, but Israeli police say they were acting on behalf of the FBI, which traced the hacks after data on the police system was destroyed.
Israeli media reports say that the youth, which was arrested earlier
this month, claimed he had no idea what he was doing, or that he had destroyed any computer data.
