More than 70 people were arrested in New York’s Times Square as protesters jostled with police on Saturday after thousands marched from the city’s Financial District to midtown Manhattan.
The protesters swamped the iconic square, stopping traffic in one of the largest demonstrations yet from the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The arrests marred what police said was a largely orderly march, one day after the privately-owned Zuccotti Park’s landlord backed down from an attempt to move the demonstration.
