Protests in Israel are continuing despite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to delay a key part of controversial plans to overhaul the justice system.
On Monday night, the prime minister said he would pause the legislation to prevent a “rupture among our people”.
In unprecedented events, the country’s biggest trade union called a strike, and Israelis watched society close down around them.
The co-ordinated action was designed to push Mr Netanyahu back from the brink of pushing through the reforms by the end of this week.
Opposition Leader Yair Lapid called it the “biggest crisis in the history of the country”.
