Protesters clashed with police in the Filipino capital on Thursday morning as hundreds of people gathered in the Manila Bay area in opposition to the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit. Police officers deployed water cannon and tear gas to disperse the crowds and prevent them from accessing the venue. The protest was organized by a left-wing alliance called Bayan. The APEC summit started in Manila on Wednesday.
