Protesters calling for ceasefire in Gaza interrupt Blinken testimony to Senate

Secretary of State Antony Blinken was interrupted by a group of protesters calling for a ceasefire in the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

During the Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, taking place on Tuesday 31 October, a protester with the antiwar group Code Pink held up a sign shouting “Ceasefire now!”.

Several other protesters with red painted hands were removed from the room, with one man yelling “Save the children of Gaza!” and another holding up a sign that said, “All the walls have to go”.
