A haredi demonstrator and eight police officers were lightly wounded on Sunday night during riots in Mea She'arim and Geula. The demonstrators were protesting against the extended remand of 16 haredim arrested during weekend disturbances in Jerusalem over the Saturday opening of the Carta parking lot, as well as the planned autopsy on the body of the victim of Sunday's deadly stabbing attack in the Kerem Avraham neighborhood. The haredi demonstrators hurled stones at police, who responded by firing stun grenades. On the capital's David Yelin Street, a police car was torched by haredim. No one was wounded.
