Several hundred Haredim rioted Tuesday in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood over the planned autopsy of a religious woman in northern Israel, police said.
The rioters pelted police with stones and set fire to numerous dumpsters along the central thoroughfare in the area, closing the street off to traffic and choking the surroundings with smoke.
There were no injuries immediately reported.
Police forces were on the scene.
