300 Ethiopian immigrants land in Israel


More than 300 Ethiopians land in Israel's Ben Gurion airport after the government approved immigration plans for 2,000 members of their Falash Mura community, whose desire to move to the Jewish state has stirred controversy. The Falash Mura are descendants of Ethiopian Jews who converted to Christianity -- many under duress -- in the 18th and 19th centuries.
