African migrants protest in front of the UNHCR office demanding asylum and work rights from the Israeli government in Tel Aviv, Israel, Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014. For weeks now, African migrants, mostly from Eritrea and Sudan, have staged a series of demonstrations demanding they be recognized as refugees, a status that would give them residency rights. Israel sees many of them as economic migrants and has tried a number of tactics to stop the migrants' influx or keep their numbers down. It has built a fence along the border with Egypt, passed a law that allows for the migrants' detention and offered financial incentives to urge them to leave. (AP Photo/Ariel Schalit) less
