Text size Aa Aa

Some 400 demonstrators have been arrested by Danish police on the fringes of the climate summit in Copenhagen.

Those arrested were allegedly members of the “Black Blocs’‘ group – an organisation which advocates violent direct action and notably disrupted the Nato summit in Strasburg in April. Police said they had been gathering paving stones and bottles and throwing them at windows of buildings and cars. The Black Blocs group has threatened unspecificied action when world leaders join the summit next week.
