30,000 African Migrants Take to Tel-Aviv Streets Protesting Detention Policy
Tens of thousands of Africans took to the streets of Tel Aviv on Sunday in protest of Israel’s detention of their fellow migrants deemed illegal job-seekers by the nation. The rally is the biggest ever held by migrants in the state.
“More than 30,000 demonstrators marched peacefully in Tel Aviv,” police spokeswoman Lubra Samri told AFP.
The protesters gathered in the capital’s centre Rabin Square, chanting slogans like: “We are all refugees” and “yes to freedom, no to prison!” A three-day strike was also launched in several Israeli cities.
Human Body Parts ‘fall from the sky’ in Saudi Arabia
A photo claiming to be of the body of the fallen human being appeared in Arabic media and social media.
Police are investigating the incident, but would not comment if the body parts are connected to a Saudi airplane that made an emergency landing early Sunday morning.
The plane, carrying 315 passengers from Iran’s city of Mashhad, was forced to make an emergency landing in Saudi Arabia’s Medina after the cockpit reported a malfunction in the rear wheel. Twenty-nine people were injured during the approach.
Cases have been documented in the past of people – in a desperate attempt to cross borders – climbing into the landing gear of a plane before takeoff. Few survive the freezing temperatures when the plane is in the air.
