Police say demonstrators planned to set fires to vehicles to block highway

Police say that anti-government protesters detained trying to block the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway may have been planning to set vehicles on fire to create a long-lasting shutdown of the main road.

Police release pictures showing tires, jerrycans filled with gasoline, planks and rags that they found in one of the vehicles.

So far 13 members of the Brothers in Arms protest group, including four leaders, have been detained, the group says.
