Violence, racism on board school bus

An resident of the northern city Kiryat Bialik is suspected of allegedly assaulting Ziona Mangistu, a public service employee in charge of escorting municipality school buses.

The incident occured on Tuesday, when Mangistu was instructed by the schools’ principal to refuse boarding one of the kids, since he was suspended by the school.

Shortly after complying with that order, Mangistu received a call from the boy’s father whom she claims shouted racist slurs at her. Mangistu’s husband Yossi said those remarks included “Stinking Ethiopian, we will have you sent back to where you came from.”
