June 22, 1986

The leader of a secular Israeli organization called the "Committee Against Religious Violence" was rescued by police after he was besieged by a crowd of ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem, police said. The ultra-Orthodox Jews were apparently offended when Avraham Fried tried to drive through the mixed secular-religious neighborhood on the Sabbath. Fried fired a shot into the air to try to disperse the crowd, but his car was stoned before police arrived to free him. A police spokesman said there were no injuries.
