Man charged with police assault after Gaza protest

A man has been charged with assaults on police following a protest over the Gaza conflict outside a Tesco store.

Naveed Zafar, 35, will appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court today charged with two counts of assault, three counts of assaulting a police officer and one count of obstructing a police officer.

It follows the demonstration in Birmingham on Saturday afternoon, and the trouble spread into the supermarket in Hodge Hill as pictures on social media showed drink cans and other products spread across the floor.
