  • Blinken sat silently as protesters called for a ceasefire in Gaza

A congressional hearing was dramatically dominated by protesters demanding a ceasefire in Gaza.

They also held signs reading “All walls must go.”

At least five individual demonstrators interrupted the proceedings and were removed.
