At least 88 people have been arrested in New York after police on horseback clashed with protesters in Times Square during a global day of demonstrations against corporate greed.
Police loaded at least 45 “Occupy Wall Street” protesters detained at the square on to waiting vans. Thousands of demonstrators mixed with tourists had poured into the area amid a heavy security presence.
The clashes took place at the corner of 46th Street and Seventh Avenue after a day of marches that began in the city’s financial district – the nerve centre of New York’s protest movement.
