African asylum seekers who entered Israel illegally protested in Tel Aviv in the biggest rally ever staged by migrants in the Jewish state. 

According to reports more than thirty-thousand people marched peacefully criticising Israel's refusal to give them refugee status and the detention without trial of hundreds of asylum seekers. Israel says that there are close to sixty-thousand illegal immigrants from Africa in the country and that they pose a threat to the state's Jewish character.
