Pro-Palestinian demonstrators occupy lobby of New York Times

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators on Thursday occupied the lobby of The New York Times office, where they accused the news outlet of having a bias toward Israel in its coverage of the war in Gaza.

The demonstrators gathered outside The New York Times' headquarters in Manhattan, engaged in a sit-in and vigil that lasted more than an hour.

The sit-in followed a series of actions at high-profile locations across major US cities, including the Statue of Liberty and Grand Central Terminal in New York and the White House, Congress, and State Department in Washington.
