In a move initiated by President Shimon Peres, his aide Yosef Avi Yair Engel met with a representative of the anti-Zionist Eda Haredit umbrella organization on Thursday night, in an attempt to try and calm the situation in Jerusalem. Violent protests continued to escalate in the capital and in Beit Shemesh as hundreds of haredim demonstrated over the arrest of a woman suspected of abusing her three-year-old son. According to Israel Radio, the purpose of the meeting was to persuade the woman, who is five months pregnant, to agree to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
