Israeli border security personnel placed 55 Harvard students in police custody Tuesday during a trip to al-Walaja, a Palestinian town in the West Bank, which was organized by students at the Harvard Kennedy School.
Shireen Al-Araj, the students' guide and a coordinator of al-Walaja's local Popular Committee Against the Wall, was arrested by police and released after the incident, according to a trip participant, an organizer, and a photographer who witnessed the arrest.
