Palestinian protest halts BBC Prom by Israeli orchestra

A concert by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was taken off air on Thursday night when demonstrators sympathetic to the Palestinian cause staged a protest in the Royal Albert Hall.

The Proms performance was being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 when it was brought to a halt by protests which prompted a chorus of boos.

A BBC spokeswoman confirmed there had been a disruption during the performance, but that it had later continued.
