Police Rescue Bridge Jumping Protesters

A group of about eight young protesters stood on the balcony of Disengoff Center in Tel Aviv in an apparent act of protest. A stand off lasted for over 2 hours Wednesday evening as scores of police and emergency rescue crews arrived at the scene. According to news reports from NRG news, the youth threw water balloons, and waved banners and released a suicide note reading "enough is enough". They threatened to jump over the ledge if anyone tried to get too close.
