A 70-year-old woman has been arrested and charged after driving her car into a crowd of pro-Palestine protesters in Edinburgh, Scotland - injuring several in the process. The incident took place around 2:30 PM Saturday, as reported by the Telegraph.

“Officers received reports of minor injuries from pedestrians, but no medical attention was required,” a Police Scotland spokesperson stated, “A 70-year-old woman has been arrested and charged in connection with a driving offense. A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.”

A demonstration was taking place with hundreds of participants at around 2 PM, as protestors marched to Bute House, the official residence of the First Minister of Scotland Humza Yousaf - demanding a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
