Some 700 Haredim riot in Jerusalem after graves removed from Ashkelon ER site

Close to 700 Haredim took part in the Sunday demonstration in Jerusalem’s Shabbat Square organized by the Eda Haredit sect, the extreme ultra-Orthodox faction that has been most vocal in its objection to the relocation of the human remains in Ashkelon. Several municipal employees in the capital were beaten on Sunday by angry Haredi demonstrators, and ultra-Orthodox youth staged riots along Bar-Ilan Street. Authorities arrested at least 30 Haredi protesters in the city.
