Author Ayelet Waldman talks after arrest in Israel

Author and essayist Ayelet Waldman was arrested by Israeli Police on Friday. She had been part of a peaceful protest with a group of rabbis that marched towards Gaza from inside Israel at the Erez border crossing.

Waldman, a California resident born in Israel, was carrying a bag of rice when the police picked her up. Waldman joins host Deepa Fernandes to share her experience.

Here & Now reached out to the Israeli Police for comment but they did not return a request for comment by our deadline.
