The U.S. State Department blocked a Palestinian human-rights advocate from entering the United States. Lawyer Raji Sourani was not given a visa to visit the United States on a March 24-30 trip, though he had meetings arranged with top U.S. officials, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights said in a statement. The U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem is requiring Sourani to obtain an Israeli police certificate before it will process his application.
