|Israel demolishes Bedouin village|
Israeli authorities have demolished the homes of about 300 Bedouins in a village in the southern Negev desert.
The entire village of al-Arakib was bulldozed on Tuesday, with many of the former residents' cattle, trees and belongings lost.
Al-Arakib, which had about 40 homes, is one of 45 Bedouin villages not recognised by Israeli authorities.
Haia Noach, director of the Negev Co-existence Forum, was present at al-Arakib during the demolition and said that at least five Israeli bulldozers arrived around 5:30am (0230GMT).
"It took them about three or four hours to destroy all the houses," she said, describing the scene as "appalling."
Scuffles erupted as the villagers and around 150 rights activists tried to stop the police from carrying out the demolitions, with several people wounded and a handful arrested, activists said.
Speaking from a town near Beersheba, Noach said that many of the residents had moved to a nearby graveyard to find shade.
