Heavy Security In London At G-20 Summit Site

LONDON — British police are out in force in London lining the streets and patrolling the River Thames as hundreds of people demonstrate against world poverty and climate change during the G-20 summit.

Police say there have been more than 100 arrests so far. Most of them are from yesterday, when some protesters broke into the Royal Bank of Scotland building and vandalized the Bank of England building.

Police have cordoned off a group of about 200 demonstrators near the Bank of England and started searching individuals. Other protesters sat and played a giant Monopoly game near the London Stock Exchange.

In hopes of drawing attention to global warming, a man known as the French spider-man climbed a London insurance building to unfurl a banner. He was ultimately led away by police.
