Right-wing protesters demonstrate in Israel and the West Bank over the death of Ahuvia Sandak, a 16-year-old killed in a car crash while fleeing from police after allegedly throwing rocks at Palestinians.

Numerous instances of violence are reported, with the Yesh Din rights group saying settlers blocked a number of roads in the West Bank and threw rocks at Palestinian cars.

In Jerusalem, demonstrators at the Chords Bridge break the windows of a bus that passes by, according to the Walla news site.
