Police clashed with demonstrating university students in Jerusalem late Thursday, and Army Radio reported two students and two police officers were injured. Several hundred students gathered at the Zion Square in downtown Jerusalem. Police said they agreed in advance to leave after their protest, but instead, they blocked the main street, and police moved in to break up the protest by force. The students have been on strike for several weeks, protesting the government's refusal to reduce tuition rates as promised. Instead, the government appointed a new committee to examine the issue, and the students went on strike in response. Universities have threatened to cancel the current semester if students do not return to the classrooms.
