Police arrested five haredim residents of Jerusalem Sunday morning for attempting to block the Israel Antiquities Authority from excavating a site outside the Old City.

Police did not state what was being excavated or why the ultra-Orthodox men objected to the dig.

After being questioned by officers, the five unidentified suspects were taken into custody and were awaiting arraignment at Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.
