Violent scenes at protest outside embassy

THESE were the scenes outside the Israeli embassy last night as pro-Palestinian protestors clashed with gardai.

Some 150 protestors turned up to demonstrate against recent Israeli military action in the Gaza Strip.

One person was arrested while a number of people claimed they sustained minor injuries during the protest.

The demonstration was attended by students, academics, Palestinian nationals and members of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC).

A number of protestors sat on the road outside the embassy and blocked traffic.

Freda Hughes of the IPSC said that, for the most part, the protest had passed off peacefully.
