Orthodox protest stops women's group from praying at Jerusalem's Western Wall
Monday 08 July 2013
Seven thousand Orthodox school children prevented members of a women’s group, who are campaigning for equal worship rights, from praying at Jerusalem’s Western Wall on Monday.
The Women of the Wall want to wear prayer shawls at Judaism’s holiest site, which Orthodox protesters say are meant for men only. In recent months, police have let the women pray, to the anger of protesters. Officers have made several arrests. AP
