Around 200 African migrants and their supporters who were gathered outside the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem to protest Israel's detention policies began marching towards the Knesset on Tuesday afternoon.

The migrants left the "Holot" open detention facility in the Negev on Sunday, refusing to return.

There are police on site and arrests are expected to take place later today. According to Israeli law, the immigration authorities can arrest detainees who do not return to the open facility within 48 hours.
