Police arrested two additional suspects in the case of two youths who were calling for segregation between the sexes outside Jerusalem's Dung Gate Monday morning.

The two teenagers, secular Jewish youths aged 16 and 17, were alleged to have stood near a bus stop and called for women to board buses through the back door. Police initially suspected they were hired by radical haredi men.

During a subsequent investigation, the youths identified the two haredi men who allegedly paid them NIS 25 per hour to publicly call for segregation. Police arrested the two suspects.
