Rally at City Hall over Military Attacks

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- A rally tonight at Richmond City Hall to raise awareness about the deadly military attacks in the Gaza Strip.

About 200 anti-war activists and members of Richmond's Arab-American and Muslim communities chanted during rush hour.

They are condemning Israel's raid on an Aid Flotilla to Gaza, that killed nine and wounded dozens.

Israel says it will deport many of the activists within the next two days.

The Government says it will hold about 50 while the violence at sea is investigated.
