Hundreds of protestors aressted in Copenhagen

Tens of thousands of demonstrators turned out in Copenhagen to show their support for the environment while delegates tried to reach an agreement on climate change Saturday, according to the New York Times.

Police and organizers estimated that there were 60,000 to 100,000 participators in the largest planned protest in the two weeks of climate talks.

968 demonstrators were detained by police Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

One officer received minor injuries from a rock thrown the group, and one protester was injured by fireworks.

The protests take place on day that saw the talks hitting a snag. Rich nations want developing countries to limit emissions with or without financial help.
