Israeli police clash with Eritrean asylum seekers in Tel Aviv – BBC News

Dozens of people have been injured in Tel Aviv during clashes between Eritrean asylum seekers and Israeli police.

Stun grenades, tear gas and sponge-tipped bullets were used against hundreds of protesters who had taken to the streets over an event that took place at the Eritrean embassy.

The unrest was sparked after activists opposed to the Eritrean government said they asked Israeli authorities to cancel an embassy event on Saturday.

But protesters also clashed with supporters of the Eritrean regime.

A statement by Israeli police said that officers used their guns as they felt their lives were in danger.
