      Protesters Close Roads in Jerusalem


      Protesters have closed streets and highways in Jerusalem Monday night as they continued the protests against the arrest of Rabbis Dov Lior and Ya'akov Yosef. Several dozen protesters succeeded in closing road 1 into Jerusalem, and police have redirected drivers to road 9, which bypasses the entrance to Jerusalem and sends drivers to the Har Hotzvim area.

      Five protesters have been arrested so far.
