Saudi police break up pro-Gaza protest

Witnesses said Saudi police fired rubber bullets to break up a pro-Palestinian protest on Monday, injuring up to eight people, but a government official denied the report. Residents said between 200 and 300 people took part in the march in Saudi Arabia's oil-producing Eastern Province.


Many protesters held pictures of Palestinians wounded in Israel's military offensive against the Gaza Strip, which has killed more than 300 Palestinians since it began on Saturday. At least three witnesses said they saw riot police fire rubber bullets after demonstrators clashed with security forces in the al-Qatif area. (Reuters)
