Dozens of Beduin demonstrated Sunday outside a courthouse in Beersheba calling for the release of 13 people who were arrested some two weeks ago during violent protests against the Prawer-Begin bill for Beduin resettlement in the Negev.

The demonstrators called for the court to release the detainees three days after the government decided to suspend the controversial bill.
