NEW YORK, April 26 — Columbia University backed off late yesterday from an overnight deadline for pro-Palestinian protesters to abandon an encampment there as more college campuses in the United States sought to prevent occupations from taking hold.

More than 200 people protesting the war were arrested Wednesday and early Thursday at universities in Los Angeles, Boston and Austin, Texas, where around 2,000 people gathered again on Thursday. The spreading protests began at Columbia University, which has remained the epicentre of the student protest movement.The protests pose a major challenge to university administrators who are trying to balance campus commitments to free expression with complaints that the rallies have crossed a line.

Demonstrators, who include a number of Jewish students, have disavowed anti-Semitism and criticised officials equating it with opposition to Israel.
