Violent fracas breaks out at Western Wall

Violent skirmishes broke out Wednesday morning at the Western Wall as Reform, Conservative and Women of the Wall leaders and activists brought Torah scrolls into the site in defiance of administrative regulations.

Although security guards from the Western Wall Heritage Foundation allowed the protest prayer group of some 200 people to enter the main site, orderlies of the foundation fought physically, but unsuccessfully, to prevent them bringing the Torah scrolls into the women’s section.
