Breslov Hassidim on their way to Uman caused damage at Ben Gurion airport, according to a report on Israel Radio Tuesday.

They reportedly smoked in non-smoking areas, littered with their food and drink, and five of them were allegedly caught with forged passports.

Another 6,000 Hassidim were expected to depart from Uman on Tuesday, and the airport police were preparing to prevent inappropriate behavior at the airport, according to Israel Radio.
