A group of people in the Norwegian capital wore shrouds, on Wednesday, to draw attention to the killing of civilians in Gaza over the last month of Israeli attacks on the enclave, Anadolu Agency reports.

Some 100 activists gathered in the Oslo Central Station and chanted slogans and carried banners calling for an immediate ceasefire and end to the Israeli attacks on Gaza.

Images of the rally were widely liked and reposted on social media.

Israel has launched relentless air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip since a cross border attack by Hamas on 7 October.

At least 10,569 Palestinians, including 4,324 children and 2,823 women, have been killed since then. The Israeli death toll, meanwhile, is nearly 1,600, according to official figures.
