Police Clear UCLA Pro-Palestinian Encampment Amid Nationwide Campus Protests

Following a wave of student unrest across the US, police cleared a pro-Palestinian encampment at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), resulting in over 200 arrests. The move comes after President Joe Biden urged protesters to uphold the rule of law, while critics accuse him of 'smearing' anti-war protesters. Similar protests have taken place at nearly 140 colleges in 45 states, with some institutions reaching agreements with protesters over divestment matters. However, many colleges have called in police, resulting in clashes and arrests.
