Occupy demonstrators arrested as they target church


More than 50 anti-Wall Street protesters were arrested in New York at the weekend after they tried to climb a fence around Trinity Church in an effort to establish a new camp. The group included a retired Episcopal bishop, pictured below. Others marched through Manhattan toward the house of Trinity's rector, while another group was hemmed in by police.
