A London store selling Dead Sea cosmetics produced in the West Bank was forced to close after anti-Israel protesters blocked the entrances and reportedly chained themselves to a barrel filled with cement. Police officers were forced to remove the activists, who have frequently protested against the outlet in Covent Garden, central London, which sells bath crystals and lotions produced in Mitzpe Shalem, a settlement by the Dead Sea.
