    Thousands protest at Israel-Sweden match over Gaza

    Thousands protest at Israel-Sweden match over Gaza
    The game between Sweden and Israel is being played without an audience because the police could not guarantee the security of the players.
    Thousands of people demonstrated Saturday during Israel-Sweden Davis Cup play in Malmo, Sweden, to protest 22-day Gaza offensive that killed nearly 1400 and wounded more than 5000.

    About 7,000 people gathered at a square in the centre of the city for a peaceful protest, with speakers condemning Israel's offensive in Gaza and urging support for the Palestinians.


    As they marched towards the arena, they were joined by the masked demonstrators who attacked police with eggs, rocks and firecrackers.
    Police said they arrested eight masked protesters and detained more than 100, most of whom were released after identity checks


    Malmo is Sweden's third largest city and is ruled by a left-of-centre coalition.
    Around 1,000 police officers have cordoned off a large area around the stadium to prevent protesters from getting in.


    Sweden took a 2-1 lead over Israel on Saturday when Robert Lindstedt and Simon Aspelin won the doubles match over Andy Ram and Amir Hadad. The best-of-five tie will be wrapped up on Sunday.
