Haredim protest autopsy of drowned child

Hundreds of Haredim from Jerusalem, Bnei Brak, Beit Shemesh and Ashdod were on their way the L. Greenberg Forensics Institute at Abu Kabir on Monday afternoon to protest the intended autopsy on eight-year-old Shimon Zwicker of Itamar, whose body was discovered on Nitzanim Beach that morning. The case has been transferred to senior political officials after Ashkelon Police insisted on the autopsy despite the general consensus of forensics experts in the institute that it was unnecessary.
