Several hundred people have been protesting in Kikar HaShabbos in Yerushalayim following a decision by the Ashkelon Magistrate’s Court to conduct an autopsy of a baby who drowned in a Jacuzzi in the Miami Hotel in Ashdod on Monday.
Protestors have blocked traffic at various intersections in Yerushalayim, as well as at the light rail, while also fighting with police.
The court had ruled prior to that that the baby’s parents would be arrested for suspected negligence.
The baby’s parents are both being held in police custody as suspects in the case.
The mother told investigators that the baby slipped from her arms while she was bathing him in her hotel room.
