J'lem mayor orders civil lawsuits against haredi rioters

Following last week's fierce haredi riots in Jerusalem over the arrest of an alleged abusive mother, the capital's mayor, Nir Barkat, on Sunday ordered the municipality's attorney, Yossi Havilio, to file civil lawsuits against those who participated in the protests and caused damage in the city. According to a municipality's estimation, the damage comes to about a million shekels.
