Pro-Palestine protesters are filmed brawling with LA restaurant diners
Video shows pro-Palestinian protesters brawling with LA restaurant diners after allegedly asking if any of them were Jewish.
The footage, recorded on Tuesday night, showed kicks and punches exchanged, as well as bottles being thrown and a velvet rope being swung upside Sushi Fumi in Beverly Grove.
Onlookers said the violence erupted after the Palestine supporters asked if any of the diners were Jews, with some responding that they were.
The Los Angeles Police Department said on Wednesday that the incident is being investigated as a hate crime.
It comes amid escalating protests across the US amid clashes between Israeli and Palestine forces in the Gaza Strip.
