US presidential candidate Jill Stein detained

Police detain dozens of demonstrators, including presidential candidate Jill Stein, at an anti-Israel demonstration at Washington University in St. Louis.

The rally is part of a string of protests across campuses in the United States and beyond against Israel, featuring calls for Israel to end the war in Gaza and for the US to sanction Israel. Many of the protests, in which police have arrested hundreds of people in recent weeks for rioting, also feature calls for Israel’s destruction as a Jewish state.

At this weekend’s protests, police arrested more than 200 people at Washington University․
