BBC Radio pulled its coverage of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Thursday evening as a small number of anti-Israel protesters disrupted the concert by shouting anti-Israel slogans at the orchestra, which was performing as part of the BBC Proms classic music festival.

The protesters were wrestled to the ground and removed by security staff, cheered on by the audience.

Minister for Culture Ed Vaizey, who was in the audience tweeted, “Demonstrators seem to have turned the entire audience pro-Israel.”
