Israeli police have clashed with protesters amid huge demonstrations against the government’s controversial judicial reform plans.
Police used water cannon to clear a major highway, and 66 people have been arrested across the country. It comes after a bill to remove the power of the Supreme Court to review ministers’ decisions passed its first reading in parliament last night.
The reforms have polarized the country, sparking months of mass demonstrations.
The bill is part of a package of reforms aimed at scaling back the power of the judiciary that have been proposed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, which is the most right-wing in Israel’s history.
