Jewish arrest protests in Jerusalem


Ultra-Orthodox Jews have continued their protest in Jerusalem over the detention of a religious woman on child abuse charges.

Hundreds of ultra-religious Jews have taken to the streets over the case, while the woman, who is suspected of starving her three-year-old child almost to death, remains under house arrest.

Katya Adler reports from Jerusalem.
