Protestors held a mass demonstration outside the Israeli embassy in Kensington, Central London on Saturday. Protestors blocked the road while some played dead in front of police, who pushed protesters as they secured the area. 

The demonstration was organised in response to recent air strikes by Israeli forces on Gaza, along with the murder of 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir. The protest was also attended by a few Orthodox Jews, who chanted "Free, Free Palestine" along with the crowd.

Homeless parolees weigh on California counties

(AP) â€" Gov. Jerry Brown based his recent overhaul of the state corrections system in part on the idea that having those convicted of lower-level crimes supervised by county probation officers instead of state parole agents when they are released would help them stay clean, find jobs and avoid committing new crimes. A cornerstone of the law's success is housing, yet county probation officers throughout the state say homelessness continues to undermine their ability to help ex-cons rehabilitate, get drug treatment and find jobs. In Marin County, probation officers sometimes pick homeless parolees up at the prison gates and pay for motel rooms until they can find a bed. In Los Angeles County, where 758 convicts released under realignment say they have no permanent address, county attorneys are considering whether being homeless could be classified as an automatic violation of a parolee's terms of release. Counties say the number of lower-level offenders â€" defined as those who have committed crimes that are non-serious, non-sexual and non-violent â€" who are homeless upon their release has not necessarily changed since the realignment law took effect in 2011. "By and large, the speed with which this whole thing was rolled out created some challenges for everybody," said Los Angeles County Probation Deputy Chief Reaver Bingham, who is forming homeless task forces in which probation officers will have 20 offenders to monitor instead of 75 to 100. Redirecting those convicted of lower-level offenses to county jails was intended to save space in state prisons while providing a modest savings for the state. When Scott was released in March after serving time on his 22nd auto theft conviction, probation officials referred him to Becker's nonprofit for housing.
