UK probes video of antisemitic abuse hurled from cars
The footage appears to show several cars adorned with Palestinian flags driving through an area of north London with a large Jewish population.
At one point a man’s voice can be heard through a loudspeaker shouting profanities and saying "rape their daughters".
"We are aware of a video appearing to show antisemitic language being shouted from a convoy of cars in the St John’s Wood area this afternoon," the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
"Officers are carrying out urgent enquiries to identify those responsible. This sort of behavior will not be tolerated."
Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the images.
"There is no place for antisemitism in our society," he said on Twitter. "I stand with Britain's Jews who should not have to endure the type of shameful racism we have seen today."
Many also took to Twitter to voice their outrage at the videos.

On Saturday, tens of of thousands of demonstrators gathered outside the Israeli Embassy in London to protest Israel's strikes on Gaza during a week of conflict. It was one of scores of protests around the world.
At least 202 Palestinians, including 52 children and eight Israelis have been killed in the worst Israeli-Palestinian violence since a 50-day war in Gaza in 2014.
