Arrests reported in Columbia University pro-Palestine protest

Local reporters are saying the New York Police Department arrested four pro-Palestinian protesters outside Columbia University, where people have gathered to express solidarity with the hundreds of students holding a "Gaza Solidarity Encampment" on the university campus's main lawn.

One reporter says at least one the four people arrested in a minor.

While university management gave the students a deadline the vacate the area, the Columbia Students for Justice in Palestine group called for more people to join and "bring a friend, bring blankets, and snacks".
