'Yom Kippur riot' in Israeli city - Jewish youth attack Arab man

"...for years, young Jews have gathered at city entrances on Yom Kippur and stoned passing Arab cars, endangering the lives of the passengers."

Tensions are simmering in Acre on Thursday after a group of Jewish youths allegedly assaulted an Arab man who drove into the eastern part of the city on the Jewish high holiday of Yom Kippur. The incident touched off large-scale rioting between Jews and Arabs, resulting in extensive damage of dozens of cars and shops.
