Protests disrupt Israeli dance performance in Edinburgh

Protesters have disrupted a performance by an Israeli dance company which was taking place at the Edinburgh International Festival.

The show - Hora - by the Batsheva Dance Company, from Tel Aviv, had to be stopped three times after protests inside the Playhouse Theatre.

Earlier about 100 people gathered to sing, demonstrate and burn tickets outside the theatre.

Batsheva is partly funded by the Israeli government.
