Thousands of African women and children seeking asylum in Israel staged a protest march in Tel Aviv Wednesday against the Jewish state's immigration policies, an AFP correspondent said.
"We are refugees," women chanted, many of them carrying infants or pushing prams along the streets of this coastal city where most of them live.
Holding placards reading "We need freedom" and "stop racism!" they marched first to the headquarters of the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, then on to the US embassy.
