Some 2,000 Africans are protesting outside UN refugee agency
Some 2,000 African refugees demonstrated in front of the United Nation High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) building in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

 

The demonstrators protested what they called the powerlessness of the UNHCR to help their cause, and urged it to ask Israel to respect their rights in line with the 1951 UN Refugee Convention.

 

The African migrants are continuing their protest against Israel's policy that imprisons them in facilities in the Negev. (Omri Efraim)
