- Story Text:British police on Saturday (May 22) made two arrests after scuffles broke out following a pro-Palestinian protest near the Israeli embassy in London.
A group of about 350 people broke away from a larger protest in central London to stage a noisy demonstration with flares and drums near the embassy in Kensington.
The scuffles broke out after the crowd moved on, marching down a busy shopping street in the areas.
A day-old ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants was still holding on Saturday evening, enabling officials to start assessing the scale of the damage after 11 days of fighting.
