Anti-racism protest becomes violent in Tel Aviv

Police on horseback charged hundreds of Ethiopian citizens in central Tel Aviv on Sunday as an anti-racism protest descended into one of the most violent demonstrations in the city in years.
The protesters, mostly Israeli Jews of Ethiopian origin, were demonstrating against police racism and brutality after a video clip emerged last week showing policemen shoving and punching a black soldier.
The protest was mostly peaceful during the day, but by nightfall became violent with at least 20 officers hurt and “multiple protesters” arrested.
