Thousands gather in Paris to say 'stop the massacre in Gaza'

Thousands gathered in Paris today to support Palestinians, calling on Israel to stop its bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

At least 15,000 protesters were estimated to have taken part in the demonstration.

Earlier this month, France had initially banned all pro-Palestine protests from public streets.

On Thursday, however, a Paris court suspended the ban, saying that bans imposed by regional prefects were "a serious and clearly illegal threat to the freedom to protest".
