Pre-Pesach shoot turned into violent demonstration shoot

Yesterday I decided to take a walk in the ultra-orthodox neighbourhood, Meah Shearim, in Jerusalem, to see the pre-Pesach (passover) preperations. As I got there I realised things were going to be very different than I had planned. I found myself stuck in a huge demonstration (against drafting yeshiva students to the army), were hundreds of ultra-orthodox men were blocking intersections, setting fire to garbage containers, throwing bags of flour and glass bottles at the police... The police brought in horses and water cannons, and arrested several men. 
I didn't get my pre-pesach pictures, but I did get some demonstration pictures :)
