Police look to keep bid night safe

Activists kept out of Bir Zeit University

Tighter Israeli restrictions on American student activists who want to study in the Palestinian territories might have been the reason a former UA student could not enter Israel, said the chairman of a U.S. based group that supports Bir Zeit University.

Since a student-protester from Olympia, Wash., was killed during a protest in Israel last March, student access to the country has been scarcer, said Fred Ajlouni, a lawyer and chairman of Friends of Bir Zeit University. [Read article]
