In an effort to prevent haredi violence, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has accepted a request made by the city's police chief to close the newly opened municipal parking lot for the next two Saturdays so an alternative site can be found within two weeks, police and the city said Friday. Barkat's spokesman Evyatar Elad said that the parking lot would be repoened in two weeks if no solution to the lack of parking in the city on the weekends could be found by then.
