Police 'watch' as violent mob attack pro-Palestine protesters at UCLA

Los Angeles police are "watching" as pro-Israeli mob violently attack pro-Palestinian students at the University of California, according to journalists and outlets at the scene. 

Student newspaper Daily Bruin said police "remain at a standstill watching" as skirmishes continue between the two groups of protesters. 

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said earlier it received a request by UCLA to intervene amid the chaos on campus. 

"The LAPD is responding to assist UCLA PD, and other law enforcement agencies, to restore order and maintain public safety," the police department said on X.
