Anti-Israel protesters infiltrated an invite-only dinner for UEFA heads in London, demonstrating against the European Under-21 tournament slated to take place in Israel in June, the British Daily Mail reported early Saturday morning.

According to the Daily Mail, three protesters were removed by security personnel after one jumped on the stage shouting and another placed himself behind the Union of European Football Association president with a small demonstrative flag.

The UEFA dinner was attended by prominent figures, including David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson, who were reportedly stunned by the incident.
