Israel on Monday admitted "mistakes" in dealing with its Ethiopian community as top officials sought to ease tensions after clashes erupted during protests over alleged police brutality and discrimination. A second protest in Tel Aviv on Sunday also deteriorated into violence, prompting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to schedule urgent talks with community leaders as well as with the soldier, Damas Pakada. At Sunday's protest, police used stun grenades, water cannon and pepper spray to disperse a crowd of several thousand Ethiopian Israelis. Protesters threw stones, bottles and chairs, injuring 55 police officers.
