Hamburg police arrest anti-globalization protesters

Hamburg police arrest anti-globalization protesters
Hamburg police have arrested several anti-globalization protesters after demonstrations against this week's Asia-Europe meeting. Authorities say it could be a taste of bigger demonstrations during next week's G8 summit. 

Germany's highest court upheld a ruling that demonstrators must stay at least 500 meters away from Hamburg City Hall where the talks are taking place.

On Monday protesters clashed with police who used water cannon to disperse an estimated four thousand people.
