Waves of Protest - 18 Jan 2014
Thousands of African immigrants have joined protests in Israel after the country passed a law allowing the indefinite detention of migrants without valid visas.

Some 60,000 migrants, largely from Eritrea and Sudan, have entered Israel without authorisation since 2006 through the border with Egypt. Many hope for asylum and say they cannot return home without risking their lives. Israel says most are illegal job-seekers.

African migrants take part in a protest at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv January 5, 2014. About 10,000 African migrants, largely from Sudan and Eritrea, protested in central Tel Aviv on Sunday against Israel's slow processing of asylum requests and arrests of hundreds under an Israeli law, approved last month and contested by human rights groups, which entitles the authorities to detain migrants lacking valid visas without charges.

African migrants walk on a road after choosing to permanently leave their open detention facility, which began operating last week in the southern Israeli desert December 15, 2013. Israel's parliament has moved to ensure African migrants who enter the country illegally can be held without charge. The new regulations enables authorities to send migrants to what the government describes as "open facilities". Migrants detained there will be able to leave the facility during the day but must return at night, and they will not be allowed to seek employment. Under the law, their detention would be open-ended, pending resolution of their asylum requests, implementation of deportation orders or voluntary repatriation.
