The leader of a Women of the Wall prayer group was detained by police and taken for investigation on Monday for defying the High Court ruling outlawing women from reading from the Torah at the Western Wall.

The prayer meeting at the women's section of the wall was attended by several dozen women, some of whom later convened in protest outside of the nearby David Police Station where the woman was being investigated.
