      4 Arrested, Police Weapon Taken at Hareidi Protest

      The Thursday-afternoon protest of hareidi-religious Jews at the entrance to Jerusalem against a freeze in funding to yeshivas turned into a violent riot including severe clashes with police. The weapon of a Yassam special-forces officer was taken from him.

      Mounted police were brought in, in an attempt to break up the disorder. Four of the protesters were arrested.
