Hundreds gather in Oxford to demand statue of Cecil Rhodes be taken down | AFP

Protesters gather at Oxford University to campaign for the removal of a statue of 19th-century British imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

The protest comes after demonstrators pulled down a statue of a leading slave trader during an anti-racism protest in the southwest English city of Bristol on Sunday. IMAGES
