Ultra-orthodox Israelis were blocking the Bar Ilan Street in Jerusalem on Thursday, in protest of the police's intention to conduct an autopsy on the body of a woman who was killed in Ashkelon. Police officers were called to disperse the crowd and were greeted by an angry rock-throwing mob. No casualties were reported but a police car sustained damage.
