At cemetery, Border Police scuffle with mourners

Channel 2 just showed intense images of the scene at the Sanhedria cemetery, where Border policemen were locked in a physical altercation with several mourners. The cause of the scuffle was not immediately clear.

Police had earlier warned the general public away from the cemetery itself, saying that it was already completely full, but several thousand more mourners were able to enter the cemetery grounds, which led to severe overcrowding.
