Migrants forced back into Israeli detention

Authorities force African migrants back to detention centre after protests in Jerusalem.

    Israeli authorities have sent African migrants back to a new detention centre after they protested in Jerusalem.

    The migrants say their rights are not being respected.

    Israel is trying to discourage Africans from entering the country, saying any increase in their numbers would threaten the nation's Jewish character.
