Several dozen haredim rolled a city garbage bin into the main intersection of Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood late Saturday night, in protest over what they believe is the desecration of ancient graves during the construction of a national highway, police said. Israeli archeologists say that the graves in question near Highway 6 in the center of the country are not being disturbed during the work on the highway.
