BERLIN (AP) -- About 1,200 pro-Palestinian demonstrators have marched through Berlin amid high tensions over Israel's actions in Gaza, while some 700 protesters took part in two counter-demonstrations.

Friday's protests passed without major trouble despite concern in recent days over anti-Semitic rhetoric at demonstrations in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. Police spokesman Carsten Mueller said there were three arrests in total.

German authorities had made clear that they wouldn't tolerate anti-Jewish statements or actions. The mass-circulation Bild daily put the banner headline "No hatred of Jews ever again!" on Friday's front page.
