A man was lightly wounded in Jerusalem on Tuesday night when he was hit on the head by a stone during a protest against the arrest of a Neturei Karta woman suspected of nearly starving her three-year-old son to death. The man was struck at the corner of Bar Ilan and Tzefania streets as he tried to move a burning garbage bin. He was evacuated to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. Rabbis from the haredi community issued calls for the demonstrators to disperse.
