29 Arrested in Pro-Palestinian March in London

Protesters were arrested for offences including inciting racial hatred, violence, and assaulting a police officer.

Police have arrested 29 as pro-Palestinian protesters took to London’s Street for the fourth Saturday in a row.

The Metropolitan Police said four officers were injured as fireworks were thrown towards officers.

Meanwhile, British Transport Police (BTP) dispersed sit-ins at stations including Glasgow Central, Manchester Piccadilly, and London’s Charing Cross, with one arrest made in Manchester.

Two people were arrested for terror offences over the wording of their banners, the Met said.

Other arrests were for inciting racial hatred, other racially motivated crimes, violence, and assaulting a police officer.

The force also touted its use of retrospective facial recognition, saying officers were able to identify a man on social media who allegedly made anti-Semitic comments during a speech.
