Pro-Palestinian Protests Sweep US College Campuses | See Pics

Columbia University shifted to online classes, while Yale witnessed the arrest of numerous protesters, and access to Harvard Yard was restricted to the public on Monday. These measures come amidst heightened tensions on campus regarding Israel's conflict with Hamas. The actions were prompted by the arrest of over 100 pro-Palestinian demonstrators who had been occupying Columbia's green space last week.
