Pro­fes­sor de­tained

The New Zealand Herald - - World -

An Amer­i­can law pro­fes­sor has been de­tained by Is­raeli po­lice for al­legedly try­ing to block Is­raeli troops in a West Bank vil­lage slated for de­mo­li­tion. Frank Ro­mano, 66, is be­ing held in Jerusalem and was to ap­pear be­fore an Is­raeli mil­i­tary court to­day. Ro­mano was de­tained in the Be­douin vil­lage of Khan al-Ah­mar, with two Pales­tini­ans af­ter stand­ing in front of heavy equip­ment to try to slow de­mo­li­tion work. The Is­raeli Supreme Court has given the green light for the army to raze the vil­lage and ex­pel its 180 res­i­dents to make way for the build­ing of set­tle­ments.
