Police break up pro-Palestinian student protest in Berlin as demonstrations spread across Europe

AMSTERDAM: Berlin police on Tuesday broke up a protest by several hundred pro-Palestinian activists who had occupied a courtyard on Berlin’s Free University earlier in the day. The protesters had put up about 20 tents and formed a human chain around the tents.
Police called on the students via loudspeakers to leave the campus.
Most protesters had covered their faces with medical masks and had draped kufiyahs around their heads, shouting slogans like “viva, viva Palestina.”
In recent days, students have held protests or set up encampments in Finland, Denmark, Italy, Spain, France and Britain, following earlier protests that have roiled US campuses.
