Thousands of Africans March in Support of Palestine
Rallies have been held in across Africa expressing support for the Palestinian people. In Cape Town, South Africa, several thousand people marched through the streets of Salt River in a show of solidarity for the people of Palestine, with demonstrators holding placards and flags, while chants of "free Palestine" and "stop the genocide, stop the hate" were heard.
Similarly, people in the Somali capital of Mogadishu took to the streets to protest against Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip and to show solidarity with Palestinians. Some were seen carrying Palestinian flags and placards with slogans such as "Stop the war crime", "Free Free Palestine", and "We demand an end to the genocide in Gaza, Palestine".
Nigerians also marched in the streets in support of Palestinians and to criticise Israel's heavy bombardments in Gaza.
