University of Minnesota police arrest 9 after pro-Palestinian encampment set up on campus

University of Minnesota police arrested nine people after a pro-Palestinian encampment set up overnight on the Northrop Mall on the Twin Cities campus.

Video and photos posted to social media showed student groups pitched tents about 4 a.m. and placed signs aimed at showing "solidarity with the people of Palestine." About two hours later, university police arrived.

"The group was asked to disperse by 7 a.m. and told they would be arrested if they chose to stay past that time," the university said in a statement. "Some of those present chose to disperse and continue peacefully protesting, but nine chose to remain and were arrested without incident."
