US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was heckled on Saturday at a campaign stop at New York's Apollo theater in Harlem by a man who accused Jews of running Wall Street.

The man was booed by the audience and Sanders went on to say that he was proud of being Jewish, that he was a supporter of Israel but that the Palestinians, also, deserved consideration.
