Pro-Palestinian and pro-Israel demonstrations were held outside the building where Caterpillar is holding its annual shareholders meeting in Chicago.

Palestinian activists say for decades the company has sold bulldozers to Israel defense forces used to destroy the homes of Palestinians.

Pro-Israel activists defended Israel's blockade of Gaza.

Israel has been under mounting scrutiny after a deadly raid last week on an international flotilla heading for Gaza.
