More than a hundred people gathered on Tuesday night outside of the Albi cafe in Tel Aviv where the owner and an employee were arrested the day before.

The arrests had sparked outrage among Israel's activist community who claimed that the police were persecuting the  predominantly left wing patrons of the small cafe after eight police cars turned up on Monday. 

The police arrived to follow up on what it said was a complaint about noise.

Police on Tuesday had issued a closure order for the cafe but the lawyer for the Albi had appealed the order and the cafe was open for business on Tuesday.
