NY police use pepper spray as protests gather momentum

Police in New York have reportedly made dozens of arrests and have been using pepper spray as they try to stop anti-Wall Street activists from storming barricades blocking them off from the Stock Exchange.
The demonstrations had been peaceful but turned violent as the night went on. Police have reportedly deployed orange netting to contain protesters.
Meanwhile, in downtown Seattle police have arrested around 20 demonstrators who refused to remove their tents from Westlake Park, the Associated Press reports.
