US student detained in Israel

A 22-year-old American graduate student has appealed against her detention at Israel's international airport over her alleged support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Lara Alqasem appeared in a Tel Aviv court on Thursday. She will remain in detention until the court delivers a ruling; no date for the ruling has been fixed.

Israel has come under heavy criticism for its handling of Alqasem's case.

Alqasem, who is of Palestinian descent, has been held at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport for more than a week since arriving from the United States to begin a master's degree at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, despite having a valid visa.
