Danish Protests spark 100 arrests

Police in Denmark have arrested about 100 people during a second night of protests over the eviction of squatters from a youth centre in the capital. Officers in riot gear used tear gas to disperse demonstrators, as cars were set alight and petrol bombs thrown.The clashes have centred on the Youth House (Ungdomshuset) building in the Noerrebro district of Copenhagen. Left-wing activists have occupied the building since 1982 but it was sold by the city in 2000 to a Christian group.
