CALGARY ─ Assault charges have been laid against three people ─ and are expected against a fourth ─ after a rally for Gaza in downtown Calgary turned violent last month.
Hundreds of pro-Palestinian supports had converged outside city hall July 18 when a small group of Israeli supporters showed up across the street.
A series of scuffles broke out and three people were assaulted.
It took police nearly a month to lay charges, Insp. Cliff O'Brien said, because of the complexity of the investigation.
