Britain has denied entry visas to a group of Palestinian medical professionals expected to speak at a conference on mental health at Kingston University, South West London.

Four mental health professionals employed by the Ministry of Health in Gaza, who were booked to speak at the event this weekend, were denied visas by British authorities, the Independent reports.

A psychologist from Bethlehem University, Dr Nahida Al-Arja, also had her visa application rejected.

It remains unclear why the applications of Ministry of Health employees were rejected, though the Independent indicates Dr Al-Arja’s visa was denied because she did not complete the application properly.
