BBC headquarters covered in red paint amid backlash for refusing to call Hamas ‘terrorists’

The BBC's London headquarters have been covered in red paint as the controversy over their decision not to call Hamas "terrorists" continues to rage.

The BBC came under fire this week for refusing to brand Hamas “terrorists” amid the conflict between the group and Israel.

Footage filmed by The Independent captures red paint on the walls and floors of the vandalised Langham Street office.

The Independent can confirm the incident happened in the early hours of Saturday 14 October.

Palestine Action has since claimed responsibility for the incident ahead of planned protests in London and other cities across the UK.
