17 people were injured in clashes on Thursday with Border Police forces, including a Swedish demonstrator who injured her leg, possibly breaking it, a left-wing organization announced. Two people - an Israeli and a Palestinian - were also arrested, they added. The group, Anarchists Against the Wall, said that some 150 people were "attacked" by Border Policemen in a demonstration against the security barrier in Ni'lin. The demonstration, they said, was held following the detainment of Ibrahim Amira, a Popular Resistance Committee activist living in the village, late Wednesday night. According to the group, Amira is not suspected of any illegal behavior. Two weeks ago, two young Palestinians were killed while taking part in a demonstration against the barrier.
