Protestors call for Gaza ceasefire

Pro-Palestinian protesters marched in New York, Washington, and other cities worldwide last weekend, calling for an immediate ceasefire as Israel continues to bomb Gaza nearly a month after Hamas’ first attack sparked the war.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declined requests for a humanitarian pause in fighting. Gaza officials say close to 10K people have died in the enclave since the start of the war. Tens of thousands participated in the global protests, which also took place in Berlin, London, and Paris. On top of demonstrators calling for the U.S. to stop supporting Israel, reports surfaced of vandalism and graffiti deemed to be antisemitic at the Washington, D.C. protest.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas yesterday in the West Bank, signifying the Biden administration’s latest effort to ease civilian suffering in the Gaza Strip and to begin creating a post-conflict scenario for the territory.

Hamburg hostage situation

A hostage situation involving a young child at Hamburg Airport ended yesterday around 18 hours after a man drove his vehicle through the airport gates with his four-year-old daughter as a passenger.

On Saturday night, the 35-year-old suspect–who is a Turkish citizen–drove his car into the area where aircraft are usually parked. According to local authorities, the man stopped the vehicle where a commercial Turkish Airlines flight full of passengers was preparing to take off. Everyone on board was evacuated safely. The man reportedly fired a weapon twice in the air and threw burning bottles from his vehicle before he surrendered. He was taken into custody, and his daughter was unharmed.

While no injuries were reported, all flights in and out of the airport were disrupted by the incident. Operations have since resumed but there are significant delays. Per airport officials, a total of 286 flights with about 34.5K passengers had been scheduled for yesterday.

Metal found in chicken nuggets

Tyson Foods issued a voluntary recall of about 30K pounds of its dino-shaped chicken nuggets because they may be contaminated with small metal pieces.

According to a press release, the recall is for Tyson’s 29-oz plastic bag packages containing frozen, “fully cooked fun nuggets breaded shaped chicken patties” with the establishment code P7211 on the back and a best-by date of September 2nd, 2024. Tyson reportedly shipped the product to distributors in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has confirmed that one minor oral injury has been reported in connection with the recalled chicken nuggets so far. Both Tyson and the USDA advised consumers who purchased the frozen chicken not to consume it.

Based in Arkansas, Tyson Foods is the world’s second-largest meat producer. Recent data shows that the company’s market capitalization in 2023 currently sits at $20.3B, behind Hormel Foods Corporation at $21.4B.
