A US civil rights legal group called on Tuesday for pro-Palestinian student protesters who interrupted a pro-Israel event at University of California Davis last month to be prosecuted.

The Global Frontier Justice Center in Brooklyn, New York, have sent a letter to Jeff Reisig, the district attorney for Yolo County, California, asking him to open criminal proceedings against the protesters, whom the rights group say violated California law.

In their letter to Reisig, the GFJC cite article 403 of the California Penal Code, which prohibits protesters from  deliberately disturbing a lawful assembly or meeting.

Two Israelis - an IDF reservist and a Druze woman whose father and brother served in the IDF - were due to speak at the UC Davis event, organized by StandWithUs, Chabad of Davis and the Chai-Life Club.
