Interfaith wedding: 'It's time the Muslims leave Israel'

Four far-right Jewish protesters have been arrested at the wedding of a Jewish-born woman who converted to Islam and an Arab Muslim man in Israel.

Several hundred demonstrators rallied outside the reception hall in Rishon LeZion on Sunday, amid high security.

The groom, Mahmoud Mansour, had sought a court order to try to stop the protest from taking place but failed.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has condemned the demonstrations against the couple's union.
