In a town on the outskirts of Jerusalem school runs have become the focal point for an ugly struggle over land and power.

Groups of Ultra-Orthodox Jewish protesters have been picketing a new girls' school.

They say their religious sense of modesty is offended by the sight of the girls and their families passing their homes on their way to school, even though the families themselves are also from an orthodox community.

The BBC's Kevin Connolly reports from Beit Shemesh.
