Child exiled from home for stone throwing

March 30, 2011 12:06 P.M. (Updated: March 30, 2011 6:19 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A 14-year-old Jerusalem boy was banned from his neighborhood by a district court, his family said Wednesday.

The child is prohibited from entering his home district for 60 days, after being convicted of stone throwing, relatives said.

Salim Bader Ash-Sha'ar will have to live with relatives and stop attending school for the duration of the order. His father was ordered to pay a 750 shekel ($212) fine for his release, according to the Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights.

Ash-Sha'ar was detained Sunday by Israeli police in the Old City.

The order, the center said, was handed down in lieu of jail time for the child.
