Thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators have gathered in the Swedish city of Malmo to protest against Israel's participation in the Eurovision song contest.

Axar.az reports that it comes as the city prepares to host the competition's second semi-final on Thursday night, in which Israel's entrant Eden Golan is performing.

On Wednesday, Ms Golan was booed during a rehearsal of her song Hurricane.

A smaller demonstration in support of Israel has also taken place.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg was among those attending the pro-Palestinian protest.

She told the BBC that there was a "moral obligation to act" and to speak out against Israel's military operation in Gaza.

"If we are tens of thousands of people flooding the streets of Malmo when Eurovision is taking place, saying we will not accept this to continue, then it's a very strong signal - and it does make a difference," Ms Thunberg said.
