Parts of central London were brought to a standstill Saturday as thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters marched against Israel's offensive in Gaza and in Paris a banned demonstration descended into violence.Police refused to give an estimate for the number present but several roads through the city center were closed during the 4.8 kilometer march, which passed off peacefully.Some 33 people had been arrested by early evening, a police source said, while three police officers were injured in the disorder near Montmartre in the north of the city.In Paris, police had banned Saturday's demonstration following violence after similar marches – a move that was widely criticized by those taking part in London.Around 3,000 people staged a peaceful pro-Palestinian demonstration in Amsterdam Sunday, calling for an end to the bloody Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip, AFP said.
