Detainees at a tent compound next to Saharonim detention center wounded two security officers Tuesday in a confrontation, Israel Prison Services reported.

Over 300 African asylum seekers held a protest at the Saharonim over the weekend, demanding they be released from custody and allowed to move freely in the country.

The protest included some 340 African migrants from the 7 block of the detention center, who refused to return to their cells on Friday and remained in yard of the block until Sunday morning when IPS officers arrived to removed them.
