White House Correspondents' Dinner Marred by Protests as Gaza Conflict Continues

The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner was met with protests outside the Washington Hilton, where guests were heckled by pro-Palestinian activists decrying the US' support of Israel's military campaign in Gaza. Meanwhile, inside, President Joe Biden delivered a speech that focused on his political rival Donald Trump, but did not mention the ongoing conflict. The event saw a large security presence, with protesters chanting slogans and holding signs, accusing the media of not adequately covering the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
