Neil Rogall reported from the London demo earlier:

Thousands of people are blocking Kensington High St outside the Israeli Embassy in London, in protest at the continuing bombardment of Gaza. All traffic has been stopped for several hundred yards.The demonstration is predominantly young and Muslim. The crowd of people has blocked in several buses. A number 9 bus has been ‘liberated’ by demonstrators and they are now waving Palestinian flags on the roof. The police keep on trying to stop people from joining the protest. The atmosphere is electric.
