Violent protests across Israel continue after police killed Ethiopian teen

Ethiopian-Israelis and their supporters took to the streets across the country over the last week  in an outpouring of rage after an off-duty police officer fatally shot a black teen, named Solomon Teka.

The mostly young demonstrators have blocked major roads and junctions, paralysing traffic during the evening rush hour, with disturbances extending into the night, protesting what community activists describe as deeply ingrained racism and discrimination in the Israeli society.
