TEL AVIV — Hundreds of aircraft industry workers stormed the runways of Ben Gurion International Airport today, disrupting flights to protest Israel's decision to halt production of the Lavi jet fighter.

At least one protester was injured and more than a dozen were arrested in a second straight day of demonstrations staged at the airport, the U.S. Embassy, the Defense Ministry and other locations. (Earlier protests, Page 6.)
