Students at more than 10 UK universities protest against Israel

Protests against Israel's attacks on the Gaza Strip have been staged at more than 10 British universities as campus demonstrations continue in the United States, with scores of protesters arrested.

Students and staff at Cambridge University have set up an encampment of nearly 50 tents.

The protesters are demanding that the university stop investing in companies that supply arms to Israel. They also say it should not accept research funding from such firms.

A student said their aim is to make sure their tuition fees are not being used for something they do not agree with. He added the protests will continue until the university listens to their demands.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak told a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday that there has been an "unacceptable rise" in antisemitism on campuses.

Sunak is expected to call on university vice-chancellors to take a robust approach to unacceptable behavior in a meeting at the prime minister's office on Thursday.
