Czech activist deported from Israel

A Czech pro-Palestinian activist was deported from Israel on Thursday, a day after he was detained by the Israeli army during a march in Hebron, in the West Bank, according to a report by ISM, a Palestinian group. The Czech citizen was deported along with a Danish and a German activist. The march, which took place on the day US President Barack Obama arrived in Israel on an official visit, was to draw attention to the Palestinian movement for independence.
