Some 100 haredim in Jerusalem's ultra-orthodox Mea Shearim neighborhood blocked a road in order to stop Egged bus line number 1 from passing through the neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.

In addition to standing in the road, the protesters overturned a baby carriage - with a baby in it - in front of the bus.

In a press conference in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem Police Chief Nisso Shaham insisted that police would not stop their activities in the neighborhood, working to stop the separation of women.
