A speech by shadow foreign secretary David Lammy has been disrupted by pro-Palestinian protesters.

Ten minutes into her speech at the Fabian Society conference on foreign policy in London, a woman came on stage carrying a Palestinian flag.

Protesters criticized Labour’s response to the war between Hamas and Israel.

Lammy’s speech was stopped several times as security attempted to remove hecklers.

The Free Palestine Coalition said in a statement that some of its members had infiltrated the event to “denounce” Lammy and his party.

“It is difficult to see how Lammy is maintaining any commitment to human rights or international law as we enter day 106 of Israel’s relentless attack on Gaza,” the group said.
