Police say they have arrested a suspect who allegedly rammed into an officer, lightly injuring him, during the anti-judicial overhaul protest in the southern city of Beersheba earlier.

The suspect, a 24-year-old resident of the nearby Bedouin city of Rahat, is being held at the Beersheba police station.

Police say the suspect will be brought before a local court tomorrow to request an extension of his remand.
