Swansea's local newspaper reported today:
Two Swansea women who have travelled to Israel to protest against the blockade of Palestine have been held by police for questioning.Council worker Fiona Williams, from Mumbles, and book- keeper Dee Murphy, from Mount Pleasant, are part of a group of 16 people from the UK, who flew to Ben Guirion airport in Tel Aviv last week.Ms Williams said: "We intend to express solidarity with the Palestinians in the West Bank and draw attention to life under Israeli occupation."
Dee Murphy added: "We are resolved."
Scores of people have been refused permission to fly to Tel Aviv, according to the pair, following demands from Israel.In Paris, more than one hundred people have been refused permission, as well as two journalists in Amsterdam.
The Parisian campaigners claim they will be deported once they arrive in Tel Aviv.
