Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the BBC Broadcasting House in Belfast Sunday, voicing their concerns over what they view as "biased" reporting by the BBC on the current Israeli military offensive in Gaza. A vigil was held at 8 p.m. local time (1900 GMT), where protesters lit candles and held a minutes silence in support of victims of the current campaign.

The protesters accuse the BBC of pro-Israeli bias in its coverage, such as providing scant coverage of Palestinian solidarity protests in the UK.

More than 70 Palestinians were killed Sunday in the most intense day of fighting in the nearly two week old offensive in Gaza, taking the total number of Palestinians killed to over 400. Thirteen Israeli soldiers were also killed, bringing the total number killed to 18.
