A Jerusalem city bus was pelted with stones by haredi assailants in the city's Mea She'arim neighborhood on Wednesday in a protest over the lack of segregation on the bus, police said. There were no casualties reported in the afternoon incident, but the windshield of the Egged bus was damaged. The bus company operates some lines for the haredi public that have separate seating for men and women.
