Bus delays continue in Jerusalem

As Arab drivers for the Egged bus company continue to strike in protest at the death of an East Jerusalem driver, delays are expected in the capital for the third day running.

The drivers have failed to show up to work since Yusuf Hassan al-Ramouni, a Palestinian Egged driver, was found hanged. An autopsy has shown the death to be a suicide, but Ramouni’s family and Palestinian media claim he was murdered by Jewish extremists.
