150 Pro-Palestinian Protesters Arrested at Yale and NYU, Escalating Tensions with Police

Around 150 protesters were arrested at pro-Palestinian demonstrations at Yale and New York University, with Columbia University moving classes remotely for the semester due to escalating anger on US campuses. Yale arrested 47 protesters, warning of disciplinary action for students who were not complying. In Manhattan, police clashed with protesters as they took down tents in the encampment. Following this, students from various universities across the US held protests in solidarity, urging their institutions to support a Gaza ceasefire and divest from companies linked to Israel. The Columbia University president faced criticism for involving the police in clearing the camp and has been urged to resign.
