Members of Israel's Jewish Ethiopian minority rally against racism in central Tel Aviv

Several thousand people, mostly from Israel's Jewish Ethiopian minority, are protesting in Tel Aviv against racism and police brutality.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Sunday's protest was mostly peaceful. Protesters blocked roads in central Tel Aviv and chanted "violent police officers belong in jail."

The first rally last week in Jerusalem turned violent. Supporters say the protests will continue.

Israel's Ethiopian community was shaken last week when footage emerged of an Ethiopian Israeli in an army uniform being beaten by police.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he will meet Monday with representatives of the community as well as the beaten solider.

Thousands of Ethiopian Jews live in Israel, many of them secretly airlifted into the country in 1984 and 1990, but their absorption into Israeli society has been rocky.
