Cape Town, South Africa - Tens of thousands of South Africans marched in the capital city, Cape Town, outside the parliamentary building, to protest against Israel's attacks on Gaza and to urge their government to take diplomatic action.

Protesters also called on the South African government to boycott Israel, and to expel the Israeli ambassador from the southern most African country's shores.

A number of well-known personalities attended the march, including Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former anti-apartheid hero Ahmed Kathrada and Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Mandla Mandela.
