One of the largest was in Argentina, where hundreds of protesters marched to the Israeli embassy to demand an end to the violence.

Outside the embassy building, President of the Confederation of Argentine Arab Entities called on the world to react.

In Venezuela, President Hugo Chavez launched a blistering attack against Israel. He said the country should appear before the international criminal court for its actions. Chavez called on the Israeli people to stand up to the government.

Venezuelan followed up his statements by expelling the Israeli ambassador from capital Caracas.
