Justice Minister Yaakov Ne'eman was attacked while praying in Hebron on Thursday by religious extremists protesting the Monday arrest of Hebron-Kiryat Arba Chief Rabbi Dov Lior.

"How dare you come to pray? You are responsible for humiliating Rabbi Dov Lior," shouted the extremists as the justice minister was surrounded by security personnel.

Lior was arrested on Monday after refusing to honor a police summons to answer questions about his support for Torat Hamelekh, a controversial religious text which permits preemptive killing of non-Jews in wartime.
