Asylum seekers turn to American ambassador for help

Following a march to the American Embassy in Tel Aviv, asylum seekers handed Ambassador Dan Shapiro a letter outlining their claims. In the letter they asked Shapiro to help influence decision makers via the American administration.


"We asked for them to cancel the law that puts us in jail and doesn't recognize us as refugees," one of the representatives said. About 10,000 people were at the protests at the various embassies. (Itay Blumenthal)
