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.
Gardai told independent.ie they are ‘aware of the demonstration’ and have a Garda presence at the protest.
