Two protesters opposed to the Israeli government are blocked from entering a conference featuring government ministers in New York.
Shany Granot-Lubaton and her husband Omer are removed from the entrance of the Jerusalem Post Conference.
Omer had entered the building and was forcibly pulled out by security guards. His finger is bloody after the incident. Shany was prevented from getting in the door.
They say they had been approved to enter the conference but were disinvited in the past day due to their political opinions. Both are New York-based activists opposed to the Netanyahu government.
Speaking at the conference are ministers Meir Porush, Amichai Chikli, Ofir Sofer and Nir Barkat.
