A group of anti-Israel protesters are back outside Auckland';s ASB Tennis Classic.

Five people from the Global Peace and Justice network were arrested yesterday, while protesting against unseeded Israeli player Shahar Peer.

There is no sign of John Minto or any of the group';s other ringleaders, who were slapped with a 500 metre trespass order.

About 20 people are holding banners that read ';free Palestine'; while one person is on a loud speaker yelling at the tennis players.

Peer is contesting today's first semifinal against Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium.
