Officials say some 15,000-20,000 people are in attendance at the weekly pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel rally in London.

Police say a man was arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offense for a placard comparing Israel to Nazi Germany.

Images and videos posted to social media appear to show other anti-Israel placards as well as chants.

The activists say they are marching for a full ceasefire in the war between Israel and the Hamas terror group — a temporary truce ended last week after it was violated by Hamas.

The march comes a day after the United States vetoed a UN Security Council ceasefire resolution which failed to condemn Hamas’s October 7 massacres in Israel — in which thousands of terrorists killed about 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and took about 240 hostages — or to acknowledge Israel’s right to defend itself.
