Police arrested 26 haredi protesters in Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh overnight Wednesday during demonstrations over the arrest and detention of a woman from an extremist haredi group who is suspected of nearly starving her three-year-old son to death. The protests, which had ceased midday Wednesday, resumed in the early evening, snarling traffic on main city thoroughfares.
