Clashes break out between pro-Palestinian, pro-Israel protesters at UCLA

Violent clashes erupted on Wednesday on the University of California campus in Los Angeles between pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel protesters and a group of counter-demonstrators, according to live video coverage provided by a US broadcaster.

Bruin, a UCLA student newspaper, says pro-Israel students attempted to tear down the anti-Israel encampment on the campus. Videos posted to social media show fireworks and physical altercations between rival demonstrators.

The LA police department “is responding immediately to (the university Chancellor’s) request for support on campus,” said Zach Seidl, a spokesman for the city mayor, in a post on social media platform X.
