The dozens of African migrants who marched from the open detention center "Holot" to Jerusalem reached their destination Tuesday and were protesting in front of the Prime Minister's office. Some of their signs read: "We're in danger, not dangerous."

Around one hundred supporters protested alongside the migrants.

The migrants began their march from the Negev two days ago and were expected to be arrested later today. According to Israeli law, immigration authorities can arrest the migrants after 48 hours of refusing to return to the detention center.
