BBC Proms disrupted by anti-Israeli protests

Help

Pro-Palestinian protesters have disrupted the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra's performance at the BBC Proms concert in London's Royal Albert Hall.

Several demonstrators in the hall shouted as Zubin Mehta stood to conduct Bruch's violin concerto, prompting the rest of the audience to boo in response.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign had earlier called on people to boycott the concert and urged the BBC to cancel it.
