Hallam Gaza sit-in ends

A STUDENT sit-in at Sheffield Hallam University protesting against Israel's invasion of Gaza ended peacefully after police were called to the scene.

The protesters occupied rooms on the tenth floor of the Owen building in the city centre, with 20 staying on the premises the previous night.

The students want the university to condemn the attacks on Gaza and provide scholarships for Gazan students.

The occupation ended soon after the police arrived.
