About 300 African asylum seekers protested conditions at the Holot detention center late Tuesday night.

They say that the facility did not have enough beds to accomdate them after their transfer from Saharonim prison on Tuesday.

Prison service authorities say the claims are false and being used to force Holot officials to do what they want.
