Jerusalem police late Wednesday broke up a gathering of Islamic officials in east Jerusalem, police said. The joint Hamas-Islamic movement event, headed by the extremist leader of the Islamic movement in Israel, Sheikh Raed Salah, and 30 other people were forcibly dispersed from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Wadi Joz after participants refused police orders to disband, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. Police hurled a stun grenade at the crowd and Salah, who said he felt ill, checked himself into an east Jerusalem hospital. Salah is already facing trial for incitement to violence.
