Toronto police have opened an investigation into an interaction between a protester and another person on Sunday during a pro-Palestinian demonstration at the Eaton Centre, one of the largest shopping centers in the country.

The demonstration took place in front of a Zara store. A recent ad campaign by the company featuring tailor mannequins wrapped in white sheets has been denounced for its parallels with victims of the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

About 150 protesters entered the mall around 5 p.m., according to police. Police officers as well as security guards were on site.

Officer Victor Kwong explains that a protester and another person who was in the center commercial then interacted.

Journalist Nahila Bendali explains the controversy surrounding the Zara ad. This is not the first time that the Spanish channel has been caught in controversy.

A video circulating online shows an animated interaction between a protester and another person in the shopping center. Several Toronto police officers are nearby.

In a situation like this, when it's very tense and there are large crowds, officers must use their best judgment and ensure everyone's safety, says Officer Kwong.

Zara apologized for its advertising campaign on Instagram. She wrote that the campaign was prepared in July and that the photos were taken in September, a month before the Hamas attack.
