Barkat says Jerusalem to add security cameras around capital

Jerusalem will triple the number of hidden cameras in the streets, Mayor Nir Barkat said on Monday at the opening of the International Conference on Freedom of the press hosted by the Jerusalem Press Club.

Barkat said that more cameras will be place throughout the city “so that we can have more evidence…”

The remark came in response to a request from Jerusalem journalist Haim Shibi that Barkat use his influence to stop police from impeding photojournalists who are frequently harassed, attacked, and prevented from getting close to the scene of the action.
