Eleven Eritrean nationals were injured Saturday in a brawl that broke out during a speech given by Eritrea's ambassador to Israel, Tesfamariam Tekeste, in Kibbutz Kinneret, Israel Radio reported.

The fighting ensued when arguments erupted between supporters and opponents of the Eritrean regime. A number of those in attendance even tried to assault the ambassador.
