Israel bars entry of foreign officials into Ramallah
An international conference of non-aligned countries scheduled to take place in Ramallah on Sunday was canceled after Israel prevented the entrance of four delegations from Jordan to the Palestinian territories.


The foreign ministers of Cuba, Indonesia, Malaysia and Bangladesh requested to enter Israel through the Allenby crossing en route to Ramallah, however they were barred entry because their countries do not recognize Israel. (Elior Levy)
