Activists' flights to Israel cancelled
Jerusalem - A co-ordinator of a mass fly-in of pro-Palestinian activists into Israel's main airport say airlines have cancelled flights for at least 100 people.
Amira Musallam said on Saturday that activists notified her via e-mail that Lufthansa, EasyJet and Air France cancelled the flight reservations of some suspected activists.
Musallam says she still expects hundreds to arrive, beginning on Saturday evening and continuing on Sunday.
The "Welcome to Palestine" project seeks to raise attention to how Israel controls access into Palestinian areas.
Unless travellers give false information about their intention to visit such places, they risk being detained and questioned, sometimes for hours.
Israel sees the move as a provocation and is vowing to deport the activists.
