A lifeless woman in her forties was found in an abandoned building on Rehov Rabeinu Gershon in Jerusalem on Wednesday evening. A Magen David Adom intensive care unit declared the woman's death on the scene.

However, before the body could be evacuated by the police, dozens of haredim who flowed to the site snatched the corpse and escaped with it, while causing damage to the police car.

Additional officers were alerted to the scene to retrieve the body.
