Israeli police ban funeral procession for Jerusalem attacker

Jerusalem - Ma'an - Israeli police blocked Palestinians from attending the Thursday morning funeral of Ala Abu Dhaim, the East Jerusalem resident who killed eight Jewish students at a school in Jerusalem one week ago.

The police buried Dhaim at dawn on Thursday, physically preventing Palestinians from reaching the cemetery. Dhaim's parents, and some of his senior relatives were permitted to attend the burial.

Police detained Palestinian photographer Atta Wessat from 3am to 5am when he attempted to enter the cemetery to document the ceremony.

Ibrahim Abu Dhaim, the Mukhtar, or community leader of East Jerusalem's Al-Mukabber neighborhood leader said in a press statement Tuesday that Israel ordered the family to burry Ala without a full funeral procession.
