Hundreds arrested after Gaza clashes sweep US campuses

Columbia University in New York has been the epicentre of a growing protest movement across America’s universities.

But whilst the New York Police Department might have succeeded in ending an occupation at Columbia last night, arresting 109 demonstrators, the protests have continued at other college campuses across the US.

At the University of California in Los Angeles overnight there were violent clashes between rival demonstrators.
