Hamburg clash: 76 police officers injured ahead of G20 summit

Hamburg clash: 76 police officers injured ahead of G20 summit

It has gotten so unsafe that SWAT teams have assembled on the streets and police have even employed water cannons and tear gas to try and control the crowds.

Protests will continue with more than 100,000 protesters expected in the city for the summit that takes place Friday and Saturday.

At least 111 officers have been hurt during the clashes, one of which had to be taken to a hospital with an eye injury after a firework exploded in front of him.

Some demonstrators wearing black hoods broke a police vehicle's window.

Policemen use a water canon to dispel protesters at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, July 5, 2017, where leaders of the world's top economies are gathering.

Some 19,000 police officers are deployed to manage security at the summit, but German media reported Friday that they were calling for reinforcements due to a range of different incidents happening at the same time. However, the protesters remained on the streets, and the violence gradually spread to other areas of Hamburg.

Barcelona chief reveals Marco Verratti wrangle with PSG
Unai Emery's side missed out on league and European honours last season despite the continued investment of their Qatari owners. Verratti is expected to report for pre-season training with the rest of his PSG teammates on Friday.

The "Welcome to Hell" march in Hamburg on Thursday, which included about a thousand hooded demonstrators, was stopped by riot police with water cannons in an attempt to break up the demonstration.

The city's squats have always been a base for leftists but up to 100,000 people from Hamburg and beyond were expected to gather during the summit to protest against capitalism, war and climate change.

While there is little disagreement on fighting terrorism, prospects of finding common ground on climate change and trade look uncertain.

The Group of Twenty (G20) is an global forum made up of the world's 20 leading economies - 19 nations and the European Union.

Perhaps Robertson is unaware that the G20 protesters are anticapitalists who are not supportive of globalization.

President Trump is also scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladmir Putin for the first time on Friday, on the sidelines of the summit.
