Protesters and police clash at NATO summit in Chicago
Chicago is bracing for another round of demonstrations on the last day of the NATO summit. Protesters say they'll march to Boeing headquarters this morning to voice their opposition to the company's role in the U-S. military.
Meanwhile, many downtown businesses have told their employees to stay home today because of the protests and expected traffic congestion.
Chicago's Police Superintendent says Sunday's protests resulted in 45 people being arrested and four officers suffering injuries. One of those officers suffered a stab wound to the leg. Gary McCarthy talked about the arrests and injuries at a press briefing Sunday night, hours after officers and protesters clashed near McCormick Place, which is the site of the summit. No details on the arrests were immediately available, but it appeared from the clashes that many of those arrested were taken into custody after refusing a police order to disperse.
