93 people arrested during demonstration at Los Angeles university

Los Angeles police arrested 93 people at a demonstration on the University of Southern California campus organized amid student protests in support of the Gaza Strip.

“No injuries have been reported. Police patrols will continue,” the Los Angeles Police Department posted Thursday.

Lt. Kelly Muniz told reporters that Los Angeles Police Department officers visited the University of Southern California campus Wednesday afternoon.

Moniz added that after the protesters refused to leave, police assisted the university in making arrests on charges of trespassing.

Meanwhile, the University of Southern California announced that the protests were over and the campus would be “closed until further notice.”

“Students, faculty, staff, and anyone who has business on campus may enter with an ID card,” the university added.

A pro-Palestinian demonstration at the University of Southern California pitted law enforcement against students demonstrating in solidarity with the Palestinians.

The wave of protests began last week at Columbia University in New York, where university authorities called in police to break up a sit-in by Jewish students last week that they accused of intimidation and anti-Semitism, and dozens of people were arrested.

Demonstrators, including many Jewish students, denied anti-Semitism.
