    Two buses were stoned by a group of Haredim in Beit Shemesh on Wednesday after the police arrested a man and woman who had asked a female passenger to move to the back of the bus. The incident began on a No. 497 bus from Beit Shemesh to Bnei Brak, which is run as a mehadrin line on which men and women sit separately.

    In a stunning illustration of karma or perhaps crime and punishment this video shows a mugger in Colombia wrestling away a womans mobile phone and immediately being hit by a bus.
