Police on Thursday afternoon arrested five ultra-Orthodox demonstrators for blocking roads in Jerusalem while protesting the recent arrest of a yeshiva student charged with dodging the IDF draft.

Dozens of protesters hindered traffic on Bar Ilan junction as they rallied in the capital.

The yeshiva student whom the protest was centered on was arrested Tuesday during an earlier demonstration and was then discovered to be a draft-dodger.
