A citizen in Denmark placed 67 coffins outside the parliament in Copenhagen with the photos and names of Palestinian children killed in recent airstrikes on Gaza by Israel.
The citizen had placed the coffins in a bid to record his protest against the killing of children and others who are killed during the 11 days of pummeling of Gaza through airstrikes and bombings.
Video of the protest was shared by the Twitter user with the handle, Rachael Swindon. “A Danish citizen placed 67 coffins in front of the Parliament in Copenhagen, with photos and names of the Palestinian children murdered during the recent 11-day pummeling of Gaza by Israeli occupation forces,” wrote the user in the caption.

The video has been circulating on social media as users express their grief and sorrow for the loss of lives in Gaza.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has been protesting against the human rights violations in Gaza and Palestine demanding an immediate solution to the crisis.
The continued efforts of the government of Pakistan and its citizens have irked the government of Israel. The mounting opposition forced Israel’s Director-General of Foreign Ministry Alon Ushpiz to call out Pakistan on Twitter, saying it needs to stop targetting Israel for the events in Gaza and instead focus on its issues.
Pakistan’s ‘Foreign Minister’s Public Diplomacy’ Twitter handle posted about a special #UNHRC session on “the grave human rights situation in Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem,” which Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi addressed on May 27th.
However, Alon Ushpiz, who has also served as Israel’s ambassador to India, had some harsh words in response. He tweeted ‘Human rights “champion” Pakistan, practically living in a palace of glass, is currently preaching to the only democracy in the Middle East as part of the @UN_HRC special session. Hypocrisy at its best.’
