Occupy Wall Street: Protesters arrested in New York

A number of anti-Wall Street protesters have been arrested in New York, hours after officials decided against evicting them from their base in Zucotti Park.

Occupy Wall Street activists had said the plan to clean Zuccotti Park on Friday was a ploy to evict them, and there were jubilant scenes when the move was delayed.

Hundreds have camped in the park for weeks, with protests against corporate greed spreading to other US cities. Riot police in the Colorado city of Denver also arrested demonstrators as they removed their tents.
