Israelis on a Cruise Refused Entry to Tunisia

Israeli tourists aboard a cruise ship were prevented from entering Tunisia, where the ship made a stop, due to a surprise decision by the Tunisian government, the cruise operator said on Monday, according to AFP.

"During Norwegian Jade's port call in La Goulette, Tunisia on Sunday, March 9, 2014, a small number of guests holding Israeli passports were not allowed to go ashore because of a last minute decision made by the Tunisian government," the Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line said in a statement quoted by the news agency.
