Rome: Brawl breaks out between Jews, pro-Palestinians after #GiladShalit rally

A young woman was lightly injured in a brawl that broke out between Jews and Israelis and pro-Palestinian members of the Free Gaza movement after a rally at the Coliseum in Rome for the release of captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

The Jewish-Israeli group was making its way back from the rally when it encountered the pro-Palestinian group that had held a counter-protest at the Shalit event. An argument broke out between the two groups and deteriorated into physical violence. The injured woman was evacuated to the hospital. It is unclear which group she belongs to. (AFP)
