D.C. police begin clearing GWU protest encampment

Washington, D.C. police began clearing a pro-Palestinian encampment at George Washington University early Wednesday and made several arrests, authorities said, hours before the mayor and police chief testified at the Capitol to explain why they had previously refused to act.

A Washington DC police spokesman, Thomas Lynch, said the encampment had grown in recent days and “become more unstable”. On Tuesday evening, protesters marched to the residence of the university president.
