A policeman conducting a routine inspection of a public bus in central Israel fined only Arab passengers for not wearing seat belts while not checking Jewish ones, according to several passengers.

Witnesses who were on the bus from Modi'in to Tel Aviv told Haaretz that it was a case of deliberate discrimination, while police denied racial profiling had taken place.
