A French supermarket filed a police complaint after members of a pro-Palestinian group put stickers on Israeli products. A man and a woman, both members of the Palestine 33 association, were initially detained for several hours on Saturday by police after affixing stickers marked “Boycott apartheid. Products made in Israel” on fruit juices and cosmetics displayed in the supermarket in the southwestern city of Bordeaux. The supermarket owners filed the complaint Wednesday, police said. Palestine 33 said it supported its members’ actions, while describing the store raid as an “isolated” incident. The group long has been involved in a campaign to persuade the Bordeaux municipality to end its sister-city arrangement with the Israeli city of Ashdod.
