Breaking News: Organisers of P10K arrested

Breaking News: Organisers of P10K arrested

Ken O'Keefe and Ian Hodgson, the two main organisers of P10K, were apprehended by Israeli soldiers today on a beach in Gaza, approximately 100 metres from Palestinian territory.

There is little information to hand at this point as communication with the outside world has been denied (this initial information comes via a mobile phone call).

Both were finger printed and told they had been arrested. Their Palestinian contact names and numbers have been taken from them.

Ian was released, forced to leave the police station and barred from the West Bank.

Ken has been held against his will at Eretz Police Station since 2pm and remains so as of sending this message. The senior officer in charge is Ammon Golan.

Check the website, updates will be posted as and when we know more:
