150 Haredim gathered in Jerusalem and tried to block the intersection on Saturday evening in protest of the arrest of two ultra-Orthodox men in Beit Shemesh.

The two were arrested on suspicion of trying to steal bones from an archeological site close to Beit Shemesh last month.

Police forces dispersed the crowd and arrested three protesters. In response, haredim hurled stones at a police squad car, causing minor damage.
