Israelis from the Ethiopian community scuffle with Israeli security forces in the coastal city of Tel Aviv on May 3, 2015Israel 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.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks during his keynote address at Facebook F8 in San FranciscoBy Aman Shah and Nivedita Bhattacharjee MUMBAI (Reuters) - Facebook Inc opened up its Internet.org platform to new websites and applications from developers on Monday, a move the social media giant said would boost efforts to get people online in low-income and rural areas in emerging markets. Internet.org offers free access via mobile phones to pared-down web services, focused on job listings, agricultural information, healthcare and education, as well as Facebook's own social network and messaging services. It has been launched in nine countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia, including India, bringing over 8 million people online, said Chris Daniels, vice president of product for Internet.org, who was in New Delhi to speak with partners and operators. The platform will be open to all developers who meet certain guidelines, including that they produce content that can be browsed on both basic mobile phones as well as smartphones and is accessible in limited bandwidth situations, Facebook said.
