Protest forces London Ahava store to close

An Ahava store in London was forced to close again after pro-Palestinian activists blocked the entrance.

Two activists reportedly chained themselves to a cement-filled barrel and had to be removed by police, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Ahava produces lotions and bath crystals using Dead Sea minerals on West Bank land claimed by the Palestinians. It has been the target of boycotts and protests worldwide.

The same London store was forced to close twice in 2009, in September and December, due to protests in which activists locked themselves to the same barrels.
