      Police Seek to Distance Protesters from Tent City


      Most of the protesters who were arrested Saturday night at the Tel Aviv protest for affordable housing were released overnight. Forty three individuals had been arrested for blocking streets, attacking police officers, and throwing smoke bombs. Eight of those arrested were still in custody.

      Police said Sunday afternoon they would not seek an extension of their remand, but would ask the court to issue an order requiring them to stay away from the protest tent city on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv.
