Police say four protesters have been detained during an anti-judicial overhaul protest in Jerusalem this evening for allegedly attacking police officers.

Protesters had begun a march following a large rally near the president’s residence, but were blocked by police from advancing past Ben Saruq street.

“During this procession and due to disorderly conduct and a case of violence against police officers, 4 suspects were arrested and they were taken to the police station for questioning,” a police spokesman says.
