Israel’s ambassador to the United Kingdom was evacuated from a London forum on Tuesday after pro-Palestinian demonstrators mobbed an event where she was scheduled to speak.

Tzipi Hotovely was rushed by security guards into a waiting vehicle amid a raucous protest outside the London School of Economics where activists chanted that Israel is a terrorist state and asked her, “Aren’t you ashamed?”

The protesters carried Palestinian flags during the demonstration, with some students saying they were blocked from attending classes, according to The Telegraph.

Jewish protestors attempted to disrupt a meeting with the ambassador in London in October.
