African immigrants in Israel stage Egypt border sit-in

African Asylum seekers, who entered Israel illegally in the past years, hold a prayer after they spent the night in an outdoor camp on June 28, 2014More than 1,000 illegal African immigrants in Israel staged a sit-in Saturday near the southern border with Egypt after a protest march against conditions in their internment camp. “We are going to stay near the border with Egypt until a solution is found so our rights are respected,” a statement by asylum-seekers at the Holot camp in southern Israel said. The sit-in came a day after Israeli soldiers stopped the demonstrators, most from Eritrea and Sudan, nearly 300 metres (yards) from the border. They ignored the rule that they must spend the night in the camp, which houses some 2,300 illegal immigrants, by camping out on the border.
