Marchers begin arriving in the Old City of Jerusalem as the Flag March officially begins, with the route set to go through the Muslim Quarter.

Most of the participants are religious teens, many bused in from yeshivas and seminaries to take part in the event.

Scuffles and arrests were reported even before the event began.
