Israeli forces arrested the chairwoman of the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla at Friday’s demonstration in Bil’in, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, supporters said.

Huwaida Arraf, a Palestinian-American from Michigan, is a human rights activist who was on board the aid flotilla that came under attack Monday, in a raid that left nine dead.

Activists said two anti-wall protesters were also detained, one Palestinian and one Israeli.

An Israeli police spokesman said three foreign nationals were detained at the rally.
