Israel: Man with knife detained at Jerusalem pride as ultra-Orthodox mount anti-LGBT protest

Thousands of pro-LGBT protesters marched through Jerusalem for the annual Pride Parade, Thursday, amidst a counter protest held by the far-right Lehava organisation and threats from those wanting to disrupt the march. At least twelve people were detained during the parade on suspicion of intent to disrupt the march, with one individual found carrying a knife. Dozens of people also lay flowers... Еще at a site commemorating 16-year-old Shira Banki, who was killed during the parade two years ago by an ultra-Orthodox activist. Lehava supporters gathered in Jerusalem on the same day to hold a counter protest. Police allowed no more than one hundred Lehava members to stage the demonstration, with the group blocked off from the march. Participants held placards reading «It's not pride, it's an abomination» and «Jerusalem is not Sodom» and “Don’t give them children,” — a reference to the national debate about same-sex adoption in Israel.
