BBC member dies after self-immolation near Israeli embassy


An active US Air Force serviceman, who set himself on fire near the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C., has died from his injuries. He had been broadcasting the act live on the video streaming platform, Twitch, before dousing himself in gas and setting himself alight. In the video, he claimed his actions were a protest against what he called an act of genocide against the Palestinians. The Metropolitan Police Department, assisting the US Secret Service, found no dangerous substances in the man’s car. The incident coincides with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeking cabinet approval for a military operation in Gaza, amidst accusations of genocide by Palestinians.
