Hundreds of demonstrators protested Saturday night in Tel Aviv against the suicide last week of a call girl, who was employed at a brothel on the city's busy thoroughfare of Hayarkon Street.

The activists protested against the woman's situation and the continued operation of the brothel, after its owners filed an appeal against its closing.

"As long as a woman's body can be bought, no woman is safe," and "brothel houses - rape!" chanted the demonstrators who also lit memorial candles and brandished signs outside the entrance to the house of ill repute.
