Swedish journalist Donald Bostrom, whose August article in the evening publication Aftonbladet accused Israel of harvesting the organs of Palestinians during Operation Cast Lead, landed at Ben Gurion Airport overnight Saturday.
Bostrom, who arrived in Israel in order to attend a media conference in Dimona, was greeted with protests and jeers directed at him by members of the Beitar youth movement.
Following the announcement of Bostrom's participation, the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee withdraw the financial support it had granted to the conference.
Vice Premier Silvan Shalom on Saturday night called the journalist's arrival "a shameful event."
