Hundreds of haredi protest in Jerusalem over arrest of draft dodger
Hundreds of haredi men protested in Jerusalem on Thursday over the arrest of a religious man for refusing to enlist for national service.


The protesters blocked main traffic arteries around the square, preventing cars and buses from entering the area. They set fire to trash cans in the area, and threw stones and glass bottles at police. Five demonstrators were arrested. (Noam 'Dabul' Dvir)
