Hundreds of people have gathered outside the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin to show solidarity with the victims of the Israel-Gaza conflict.

They are protesting against Israeli military action in Gaza.

Crowds are taking part in a ‘die-in’ as they lie on the pavement outside the building on St Stephen’s Green, all wearing a poster with the name of a victim from the current conflict.

The names and ages of each of the deceased are being read out to the crowd.
