Student protest halts Israeli ambassador visit
ANGRY students blockaded a lecture theatre to prevent an Israeli ambassador visiting Essex University.
The deputy Israeli ambassador Alon Roth-Snir was invited to the Wivenhoe campus by the Department of Government to speak to students studying Middle Eastern politics.
But the trip was disrupted after hundreds of protestors demonstrated against the visit as an act of solidarity with Palestine.
