Pro-Palestinian pitch invader disrupts Cricket World Cup final in India

A pro-Palestinian protester in India breaks through security cordons to invade the pitch at the Cricket World Cup final, stopping play briefly while he hugged superstar batsman Virat Kohli.

Wearing a face mask in the colors of the Palestinian flag, and a T-shirt with the slogan “Stop Bombing Palestine,” the man ran onto the pitch in the 132,000-seat mega-stadium in India’s western city of Ahmedabad.

He is escorted off the pitch by security officers, and play swiftly resumed.
