  • Description

    The Arab Mayor of Nablus on the occupied West Bank of the Jordan has been detained by Israeli military authorities, and is facing deportation. Mayor Bassam El Shaqa was detained on Sunday (11 November) for expressing sympathy with Palestinian raiders who killed 34 Israeli bus passengers last year. He has three days to appeal before being deported. Shortly after Mr. Shaqa was detained, the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation held an emergency meeting in Beirut. Spokesman Abdel Jawad Saleh condemned the Israeli action as a dangerous step.
