At least 20 suspected pro-Palestinian activists were denied entry into Israel on Friday following police questioning at Ben-Gurion International Airport.

The activists were part of two flights arriving from Europe which police had said carried the bulk of pro-Palestinian activists taking part in the "Air Flotilla."

The activists were citizens of a number of different countries, including the United States, France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium.
