10,000 Africans Rally in Jerusalem, Knesset Speaker Thwarts Talks With MKs

Three MKs initiate meeting with representatives of African community, but Knesset speaker denies their entry; Israeli author David Grossman joins the protest and says: 'I feel embarrassed and ashamed that we have reached this situation.'

An estimated 10,000 asylum-seekers protested Wednesday in the Wohl Rose Park across from the Knesset, as their nationwide strike entered its fourth day.
