    A group of pro-Palestinian demonstrators who attacked a coffee shop outside the Israeli embassy are appealing against their sentences.

    The ten protesters were among more than 78 people charged following a demonstration against Israel’s invasion of Gaza.

    Their lawyers are expected to argue that the “deterrent” sentences, some of up to two and a half years and most for violent disorder, were inappropriate.

    Police intervened and arrested more than 100 people after the crowd threw stones and bottles.

    A picket has been organised at the Court of Appeals in solidarity with the protesters by groups including Stop the War Coalition, British Muslim Initiative and Palestine Forum of Britain.
