Naomi Wolf, the feminist author, has been arrested at a protest against corporate greed outside an awards ceremony held to honour New York's Governor.

Ms Wolf and a companion were handcuffed outside Skylight Studios in Manhattan where Governor Andrew Cuomo was to accept the "game changer of the year" award from the Huffington Post. She was detained after ignoring police warnings to stay off the street in front of the building where the awards ceremony was being held and where a crowd of about 50 Occupy Wall Street protesters were rallying.

It was unclear what charges Ms Wolf might face, if any.
