France warns pro-Palestine activists against West Bank trip

PARIS - France urged pro-Palestinian activists, who plan to visit Bethlehem this month in solidarity for residents of the West Bank, to avoid joining the operation given there was a high risk of being detained or turned back by Israeli authorities.
About 1,200 Palestinian supporters throughout Europe have bought plane tickets for the visit on April 15 to help open an international school and a museum at the request of a local organization called "Welcome to Palestine."
A similar, though smaller, operation last year led to a few hundred activists being blocked at European airports.
